How to teach children to make God their refuge?
by Esme Schmitt
Children are not immune to the trauma of life. They experience divorce, death, bullying, lack of friends, achieving low grades at school, not making the first rugby team or many other things like that. During such times they need a place to hide and to heal.
If you have a nurturing home, it is really great since you can provide a safe place where you child can process their thinking. Even this, though, is not sufficient for what your child need in times like that. Your child need God and they need to make God their refuge place.
Psalm 36:7 says, “…the children of men take refuge and put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.” This is the place where God wants your child to be. In this place He can truly heal your child, show His love for your child and care for your child. Isn’t this a liberating thought!?
Below is an infographic that can provide you with tips for how you can lead your child to make God their refuge.
I pray that God will guide you and teach you in the way you should go. May His blessings rest on your home and His Power manifest in your family!
