It’s March and your kids probably have had a few snow days this winter. For some of you, that’s an understatement. How many playdates can you organize with friends? How many trips to the movie theatre or the mall before the bank account is depleted? How many snowmen can the kids build and snowballs can they throw before everyone needs a warm activity that doesn’t involve a computer screen or a power cord?
Let us introduce you to one of our new and fun devotional products: The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids. Test your Bible knowledge while introducing your kids to Bible trivia in a fun and challenging way – guaranteed to challenge the parents, too! The kids can read this independently, with family around the dinner table, at bedtime, or with friends.
The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids provides multiple choice questions for all 365 days of the year while providing a great teaching resource for family devotions.
Here are a few sample questions from the devotional. The first question makes most family drama seem like an argument over who forgot to the put the top back on the milk carton!
Q. Who killed all but one of his 70 brothers in order to be in power? (Talk about family conflict…)
Whichever answer you chose, the author stresses the point that it’s okay to have goals, but it’s not okay to hurt others to achieve those goals.
Here’s another sample. Imagine another family squabble when someone takes a video game or a lego spaceship from a sibling and they have to pay a percentage of their loot.
Pay it Back
Q. According to the Book of Numbers, if a person took something from another person, he was to return it plus an additional ____________.
This Old Testament solution might put a quick stop to thievery in your house!
And then there’s the punishment for complaining in the Old Testament:
Miriam is Punished
Q. When Miriam complained against Moses, she was:
a. Struck with blindness
b. Became paralyzed
c. Was stricken with leprosy
Isn’t there an option d? These all sound a little hard. But the moral of the story is that when God appoints someone to take care of us, he expects each one of us to respect their authority. Do you see the potential conversations these trivia questions would produce in your home?
To find out the answer to these questions and more (and while you wait for spring) pick up a copy of The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids. The whole family will have an opportunity to brush up on their Bible facts!
