It is my belief that every young child can know the Lord. Through modeling, those people whom the child respects and loves influence how they think and behave.
This story is very much about teaching children through example. I have included important verses from scripture which are a Biblical foundation for children. They teach about God. God is sovereign. He is Holy. He is love.
God has a plan for each and every one of His children. It gives Him great pleasure for them to talk with Him. It is in His plan to bless, keep, and protect His children. I encourage you to teach your child to love God:
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40 (KJV)
This teacher guide has been created as a resource to be used with the LITTLE MONKEY children’s book. Feel free to reproduce the pages for classroom distribution or there is a children’s coloring book also available. May our goal be that many young lives are saved and changed through the power of the love of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
