Josiah Promises to Follow the Lord

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God’s Word changes our lives

Key Verse:

“All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”
2 Timothy 3:16-17

(Open the bible and read to your child 2 Chronicles 34) Josiah began his rule when he was just eight years old! He likely had people advising him because of his young age. His advisors must have led him well because he followed in the footsteps of his great grandfather Hezekiah by obeying the Lord. At 26 Josiah decided to repair and restore the Temple, which had been turned into a house of idolatry by his father Manasseh. It was during this cleansing that the book of law was found. When Josiah had it read to him he was greatly disturbed, because they did not know God’s Word. Josiah decided to follow God and share with the people the word as well. As a result the people changed and began to follow the true God and worship Him!

Tell about something you’ve learned from the Bible. Why was that lesson important to you? New knowledge about God is powerful. Discuss how reading the Bible and learning about God can change people. Throughout the week, encourage each other to read the Bible to continue learning God’s important lessons.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
If you don’t already have one, pick out an edition of the bible that your whole family will understand and enjoy. Take turns each night after dinner reading out loud for a few minutes; then answer three simple questions: What does that passage say about God? What does this passage say about me? What Does this passage say about those I love?
