Major league, minor league. One is better than the other, but that’s not the case with the Major and Minor Prophets. Just because we call them the Minor Prophets doesn’t mean these prophets or their messages are any less important than the Major Prophets, which we talked about last time. It simply means their Bible books are shorter. In addition to being shorter, these books can also be confusing. Even so, you can have confidence when teaching them to the children in your Sunday school class!

Maintaining the attention and focus of children can be a big challenge. We all as teachers want to make an impact and help change lives by teaching the truth, explaining concepts, and sharing life lessons to the next generation. But how can we impact their lives if they’re not paying attention?

Can you remember a time when you questioned who you are or what you’re doing on this Earth? Maybe this question plagued you many years ago or as recently as last week or yesterday.
So how do you review effectively with hyper kids who likely consumed bowls of sugary marshmallow infused cereal for breakfast? (If your answer included written essays or standardized testing, I’m curious to hear how that’s working out for you.) My favorite method of reviewing with children is review games!
How can you help kids in your class to not just memorize God’s Word, but understand what it means and apply it to their lives?
From the mundane to the serious, children have many needs to bring to God. But they may think their problem is too small for Him to care about or worry they won’t say the words just right. Or perhaps they’ve never even realized that they can have a conversation with God that goes beyond the rote “Now I lay me down to sleep.” You can use the acronym PRAY to teach the kids in your class how to talk to God.
The saved children in your class need your help to grow in their relationships with God. “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). You can start by teaching them these basic steps of growth.
In today’s world children face many crises. Some crises are personal while others are more general in nature. God wants to use you as a teacher to help those under your care, giving them godly counsel during times of crisis.
