All of these facts are true. This was a fun way to learn some facts about animals.
Where can we find the truth about how to live and how to get to Heaven? We need to look in the Bible. God, who is the author of the Bible, is the source of all truth!
Load a game onto the computer and play it together. (There are tons of fun online games for cheap or free.)
We could play this game because we loaded it on the computer.
How are our minds like a complicated computer? (They store facts and pull them up when we need them; etc.)
If our minds store everything that comes into it, why should we be careful about what comes in? (It will stay there; we don’t want to put wrong thoughts and/or ideas into our minds; etc.)
If we put garbage in, we’ll get garbage out (GI—GO). If we put good in, we’ll get good out. If we don’t put wrong thoughts into our minds, they will be clean and pure. The Bible tells us to keep our minds pure. (1 Thessalonians 4:1-8). Be careful what goes in!
Daily Doses of Truth
One must KNOW what is true in order to LIVE by it. Give your child a good devotional guide. Go to https://d6family.com/d6curriculum/ to find age-graded devotional magazines to help everyone get into the habit of reading the Bible daily. Set aside a few minutes every day (kids have more free time in the summer, right?!) for each person to go to a quiet place and read their Bibles.
