5 Great Bible Stories for Kids
With wise teachings filling the pages of our Bible, sometimes it may seem difficult to be able to teach our children the word of God. Many of the stories in the Bible could be hard for kids to understand; however, it is our goal at Concord Road Church of Christ to teach children the Bible in ways that children can understand.
In an effort to impact and assist the many families who reside in Brentwood and Middle Tennessee, we have summarized five Bible stories fit for kids. These stories will help bring the teachings of God into our childrens’ lives, even if our children haven’t figured out algebra yet!
The Story Of Joseph - Genesis 37 - 47
Stemming from jealousy and anger, Joseph’s brothers plotted a plan to get rid of him and ended up selling him off to Egypt. Despite his heavenly dreams and his admiration by his father, Joseph meant no harm to his brothers. Regardless, his brothers allowed envy to overtake their hearts.
After some time, Joseph was granted great stature and authority under the Pharaoh's official. Even though he endured hardship, Joseph ended up governing land in Egypt. He was even governing the distribution of grain, which was what his brothers went to Egypt to obtain years after betraying Joseph. Joseph had aged and grown, and his brothers didn’t recognize him. But Joseph recognized his brothers. Even with the ability to seek revenge and retaliate on his brothers, Joseph decided to graciously welcome his brothers. He chose to love and care even when he wasn’t shown the same by his brothers.
