Sermons Can Be A Challenge For Kids
Sitting and listening can be a challenge for kids on a typical day. But, it can be more-so of a challenge when it comes to a Sunday sermon.
The reason sermons are a challenge for kids is because they don’t understand what’s being taught by the speaker; they have no clue what they’re listening for or listening to. Even the concepts of what’s being taught in a sermon are spiritual truths which can be hard to understand for adults, nevermind kids!
John 6:60 NKJV says,
Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying; who can understand it?”
Imagine, Jesus had to use parables with the crowds and His disciples, like The Seed and The Sower, to try and bring a spiritual truth.
It takes hearing with spiritual ears what the Spirit is saying to us to understand what the Lord wants to reveal to us.
It’s our responsibility as parents to help our kids cultivate a listening ear to the Word of God along with studying the Bible; it’s a spiritual discipline. We’re to guide our kids in this process, but, if you’re like me, maybe you’re wondering how to help them start listening to a Sunday sermon and get anything out of it.
