2nd and 3rd-Graders Need Bible Lessons!
Bible Lessons Help 2nd and 3rd-grade Students Be Leaders
As a 2nd or 3rd-grade student, one of the most important things you can learn is how to be a leader. In the 2nd or 3rd-grade, peer pressure hasn’t fully set in, making it the opportune time to teach your children that they don’t have to do what everyone else around them is doing.
By teaching your children the Bible through structured Bible lessons, you’re encouraging them to lead by example and stand firm upon the truths that they learn from each lesson. This changes how they respond in everyday life situations because they have an outlook and belief system that’s been shaped by the way God sees things.
As your 2nd or 3rd-grade student starts to get older and the social sides of life and school become more intense, they’ll be better prepared by having spent hours learning about the things in life that matter most. Even though 2nd or 3rd-graders are still young, don’t underestimate the power of teaching them the Bible now.
Do you remember as a child when you first heard about David and Goliath? How a young shepherd boy defeated a mighty foe by trusting in God, and went onto become a king? Powerful stories like these inspire children and help them see that even though they might be young, God still has a big plan for their lives and wants to work through their lives even in the 2nd or 3rd-grade.
Bible Lessons Help 2nd and 3rd-graders Overcome Shyness
At one point or another, we’ve all seen children who struggle with shyness. They might have difficulty starring people in the eyes, talking loudly enough to be heard, or avoid all social interaction altogether. One of the great things about learning about God in the Bible is that you also learn a lot about yourself!
Your outlook on life can completely change when you start to realize who you are through Jesus Christ. God has given us a future and a hope. He has a marvelous plan for each of our lives and calls us all to be ambassadors for Him here on this earth.
When you realize that you’re God’s hands and feet, and He doesn’t see your failures, but rather your new identity in Christ, you can start to live with a freedom that you’ve never had before. When children who were once shy get a hold of the reality of what God has done for them, their interactions with people begin to change. They can speak and engage with others with confidence!
The main purpose of Bible Blast is to help children discover who God is and begin a relationship with Him that will change the rest of their lives. Your 2nd and 3rd-grade students to need to learn who they are in Christ.
Bible Lessons Help 2nd and 3rd-grade Students Be Empathetic
If you’re remember anything about being the age of a 2nd or 3rd-grader, you’ll know that at that age life primarily reloves around one thing. Having as much fun as possible! Whether it’s playing outside, buying new toys, going to the movies, visiting a theme park, playing with friends, 2nd and 3rd-graders want to have a good time.
Bible Blast is perfect for this age range because we created our Bible curriculum with this in mind. The lessons are thoroughly fun and engaging for kids. However, while we’ve made the experience fun, we also ensure the powerful truths of each lesson are understood.
When life is all about fun, it’s not uncommon to have trouble sharing or considering the needs of others before your own personal needs. God has filled His Word with the truth we need to help us live unselfish lives, and pour out of the abundance that He constantly pours into us.
As your 2nd or 3rd-grade students explore the Bible through Bible Blast, they’ll begin to think differently about how they live and how well they consider the needs of others. When they understand that God wants us to give to and support others with our time, attention, and resources, they can begin making changes to their lives. Not out fear or compulsion, but out of a love for God and a desire to live and be like Him.
Bible Lessons Help 2nd and 3rd-graders See The World Differently
What type of world view does your 2nd or 3rd-grader have? A worldview is the belief system through which you view the world, and in turn, make decisions. It’s hard to imagine that the things your child is learning and observing now will impact the way they see the world when they’re older, but never the less, that’s what happens.
Take a moment to think about all the ways your 2nd or 3rd-grader is influenced:
- School and Sunday school teachers
- What they watch on YouTube
- The video games they play
- The movies and shows they watch
- What they observe about their family members
What your child absorbs in each of these different areas will ultimately play the largest roll in shaping the direction they go with their life, and whether or not they choose to have a relationship with God. With so many active influences constantly at play, doesn’t it make sense to supplement things with regular Bible lessons?
Weekly or daily Bible lessons are your opportunity as a parent or teacher to ensure that the 2nd and 3rd-graders in your care are receiving sound teaching about their Creator and the love He has for them. We encourage you to use the opportunity you have now to speak into your children’s lives. Don’t take a day for granted! In the grand scheme of things, the time we have on earth is short, so let’s make the most of it!
Bible Lessons Help 2nd and 3rd-graders Plan for the Future
When you’re a 2nd or 3rd-grader, it can be hard to imagine what you’ll be eating for breakfast tomorrow, let alone what you’d like to do with the rest of your life! But the fact of the matter stands that God has a big plan for each of our lives. The faster your children get a hold of this, the earlier they’ll begin to live intentional lives for Christ.
We know that God has given all of us unique skillsets and abilities to impact the world in a unique way. By teaching children about this and how to have a relationship with God, they’ll be able to find and tap into what God has given them at an earlier age.
Bible Lessons Help 2nd and 3rd-graders Spread the Gospel
And last but not least, a great reason to invest in Bible lessons for 2nd and 3rd-graders is to encourage them to share the gospel with the people in their lives. As adults, it’s easy to downplay the impact that our kids can have on the world around them, but the fact of the matter is that we serve a BIG God who can use any life submitted to Him for incredible things.
Our hope and prayer is that as you teach your children about the things of God that it stirs their hearts and that they won’t be able to get enough!
