Honeyword Bible

Here at GoKids!, we use the Honey Word Bible www.honeyword.com. We give all of our kids K-5th grade a brand new Bible after the 3rd time they attend church.  All of the kids love their Bibles.  We give them a GoKids! bag to carry it in and we reward them with points  for “store” for remembering to bring it and USE IT.  One of the things I like about the Honeyword Bible, is the fact that there are “Clickers” that help children remember the verse(s) they are learning about. This helps them recall what they learned  by using it in their daily lives and gives them a visual and/or tactile reminder, as well.  One Sunday during services, as a way to help encourage folks to sponsor a bible for a child, I taught the adults and kids one of the “Clickers”.  Try this at home:

 I LOVE GOD’S HONEY MORE THAN MONEY

“Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever.
The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair.
they are more desirable n gold, even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,  even honey dripping from the comb.”
Psalm 19:9-10

MAKE IT STICK: (activity to help remember the teaching)  Get some round crackers and pretend they are large coins.  Now, place the crackers on a plate and pour a little honey over them.  Then say this lesson as you hold each “coin” between your fingers and lick it clean.  The sweet taste should remind you of the sweeter-than-honey, better-than-money taste of God’s  Word as you learn to obey it.

CLICKER WORD: HONEY

In Psalm 19, David made a big list of good things that come from obeying God’s Word: protection, joy, wisdom, light, and insight.  Then, he said 2 amazing things: Gd’s Word is way better than tons of money, and it’s  to the soul that it tastes better than honey.  You might not believe that now, but one day you will.  As you choose to follow god, you’ll find that his honey (the Bible) is  the sweetest thing in life.  You’ll want to taste more and more of it.  It will be a greater help than any amount of money.

So, now, whenever you see, taste or think about honey, let your heart enjoy the sweetness of this lesson as it clicks and sticks:

  I LOVE GOD’S HONEY MORE THAN MONEY-Psalm 19
