Y is for the rich young man

The story of the Rich Young Man (Mark 10:17-22) has a sad ending. He loves his money more than Jesus. With older children you could talk about  things that get in the way of them following Jesus.

just couldn’t think of what to do for the letter i in our Bible alphabet series at toddler group. I looked through Young’s concordance and decided on Immanuel. It fitted so well as we are approaching Christmas. Bible reference – Immanuel is mentioned three times in the Bible – Isaiah 7:14; 8:8 and Matt 1:23.… Read More I is for Immanuel
