DEAR BILLY GRAHAM: Is it worth it to try to teach young children about God or the Bible? Our son is 6, and right now, he only understands things he can see. R.P.

DEAR R.P.: Yes, it is worth it to teach young children about God and the Bible. They may not understand everything we say, but theyll begin to realize that God is real, and that he is important to us.
Children also need to know that he made them, and that Jesus gave his life for them so they can be with him in heaven forever.
Pray with your children and ask God to help you teach them about his love; a Bible story book for children can help you do this. The Bible says, Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up (Deuteronomy 6:7).
