Oh, what fun it is to teach children new words. It can particularly be helpful, in teaching children to grasp the meaning of words, to demonstrate their meaning. For example, words such as over, under, around, and through can be easily demonstrated for a young child.
As a child begins to increase his personal vocabulary and comprehension of word definitions, a parent can more effectively use these words to assist a child in understanding the attributes of God.
For example, teach your child that God is always near us using the words over, under, around, and through. Read to your child Psalm 139:8-10: If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
Then, enter into conversation to help your child understand that no matter where he goes or what he does, God is always present. If he were able to jump over the highest building God would be there. If he were to climb under the earth into the deepest, darkest cave, God could still see him. If he were able to travel around the world by boat, and plane, and train, God would travel each mile of the journey with him. Then, challenge him to think about the activities and circumstances of his day. Help your young person to realize that God will go through each and every moment of his life with him. He will never be alone.
