If you are a parent and want to guide and discipline your children according to the Bible then you need to put together a Child Training Bible!
What is a Child Training Bible?
The Child Training Bible is tool that allows parents and children (and anyone that loves the Word of God) to go directly to the pages of Scripture for instruction in 20 key areas with a complete section dedicated to the gospel.
The CTB was designed with Colossians 3:9-10 in mind. “You have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self.” The Scriptures selected for the CTB teach why we are to “put off” certain behavior and what godly behavior we are to “put on” instead.
What is included in your CTB kit?
You will receive 1 key and 3 laminated cards
What else did I buy to complete the CTB?
I purchased this hardcover ESV version on Amazon. It is selling for $10.87. It works well because it is hardcover and the exact size that is needed to fit the key inside the front cover. I taped a picture of our family on the front as a reminder that God's Word is for the entire family.
I bought this set on Amazon for $12.80. It is not necessary for you to purchase this exact set. If you already have highlighters to use, you can use them. I made the purchase because I wanted to make sure I had the colors that were needed to match up with the key.
Post it Flags
I bought the Post It flags on Amazon for $8.73. You don't need these specific flags but they work really well since they have the colors to match the key and the highlighters.
If you purchase the Bible, highlighters and post it flags on Amazon, you will reach the required amount to receive free shipping.
I will not lie to you, the CTB takes a while to put together but it is worth every minute. It helped me to put it together myself because I was able to reacquaint myself with the verses that I would need to train my child.
|This is what my completed CTB looks like|
I have read the Bible through from Genesis to Revelation several times but I still needed to be reminded of these verses. By taking the time to tab and highlight them for myself, I was preparing myself for when I would need to use these verses with my children.
The kit comes with instructions and there is also a video tutorial on the Child Training Bible Website. The explanation is very clear and easy to follow.
How does the Child Training Bible Work?
When your child is having difficulty, you look at the CTB key card that you have taped in the front of your Bible. Let's say that my Sydney is being disobedient. I open to the key and find the word Disobedience. I then follow the tabs that I marked which lead me to all the verse in the Bible that discuss children and obedience. Sydney is old enough to read it aloud but if you have a younger child, you can read it to them.
The laminated cards also come with discussion questions to use with your child. There are also sample prayers to get you started on the right track!
