Parables are a fantastic teaching tool for young children. They are merely simple stories that portray a lesson. They bring a possibly complicated concept to life by describing them using situations that people can better understand. Jesus used them often when he taught and the lessons learned from those parables are life changing.
Some of the parables teach about God’s kingdom while others show us how to make choices that are good and right. There are many parables in the Scriptures and they all are full of biblical truths that we should apply to our daily lives. Below you will not only find my recommended resources for teaching your children about the parables in the Bible, but you can also download a eleven page printable pack of copywork that features Scriptures taken straight from them!
