Eight out of 10 people believe the Bible is sacred. In fact, 88% of households own a Bible. However, Christianity in America is on the decline. Each generation seems to get farther and farther from Biblical, Christ-centered values.
Millennials (those born between 1981-2000) have nearly double the amount of non-Christians as the Elders generation (born between 1927-1945), which shows the continued decline of following Christ in the US.
This shouldn’t be much of a surprise when we consider the current state of our nation. While media doesn’t necessarily depict a day in the life of a typical American, we can see that our country’s ideals continue to swing further from Biblical values.
So as a believer, how can we instill a love for the Bible into kiddos? This solution will require folks from every generation to pour into the kids we love. So, moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, godparents, neighbors and friends…we’re in this together!
But, where do we start?
We’re all at different places in our journey to share God’s Word with the children in our life. What’s the next step for you?
- Does your child know what the Bible means to you?
- Have you ever read the Bible to them?
- Are you reading Bible stories consistently to them?
- Could you start a reading plan?
If we each take one step forward, imagine how many more children would have a chance to learn and love the Bible?!
