WHAT TEACHING MATERIALS (curriculum) SHOULD WE USE?
Matthew 13:19 (NIV) “When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart.”
Our children are facing perilous times. They are inundated with ungodly teaching. Their moral values are being determined by their friends and the media. If ever there was a time to teach children Godly principles it is now.
What teaching materials or curriculum should we use? When teaching them we must keep in mind Matthew 13:19 to be sure that they really listen to and understand God’s word so that the devil cannot steal it from them. We must be aware that secular teaching competes for their attention and we must minister to them using quality material and teaching methods that are at least as good as or are better than what the world has to offer. If you do not have the gift of teaching and are unable to write your own material, be sure to draw from anointed resources presented by people who are experienced and knowledgeable ministers of God. I have known Patti Loranger for many years and have worked with her and watched her develop into a mighty woman of God. I believe she hears from the very heart of God when she is preparing teaching materials. Her material is truly anointed and affordable and I feel that every children’s minister should prayerfully consider using it.
