Welcome to Day 13 of the Crazy Kids Bible Devotional Jesse Tree series!

For those of you who have been listening to the podcast, I just want to thank you so much for letting my family come into your home everyday! Presenting this Bible study for kids every day has been a tremendous blessing to my children and they are thrilled at the thought that there are other children out there participating with them!

If you haven’t been listening (or doing a Jesse Tree study of your own), this halfway point is an EXCELLENT place to jump in. Today we’re talking about the basis of “The Jesse Tree” and just how BIG God’s plan is!

Note: Our kiddos are going to be reading from the Common English Bible (CEB). We love this version because, while it’s a translation and not a paraphrase, it uses language that is approachable and more easily understood by our children. My husband and I like the translation for ourselves as well, and we enjoy all being able to open our Bibles (hard copies and iPad versions) and read from the same translation.

Today’s Bible story is about Joseph. There are so many parallels between the story of Joseph and the story of Jesus. The Jesus Storybook Bible says it so well:

Like Joseph, he would leave his home and his Father. His brothers would hate him and want him dead. He would be sold for pieces of silver. He would be punished even though he had done nothing wrong.

Thinking about those similarities also reminded me of a book that I’ve been meaning to read for some time – Raising a Modern Day Joseph. I’ve probably owned it for 3 years, ever since I heard the author speak, but it’s never made it up to the top of the stack on my nightstand. The question the book tries to answer is – How do we raise a child who can head out into the the current culture as a teenager and choose to continue to serve God? Can we raise children who can do what Joseph was able to do?

I’m moving the book to the top of the stack. Actually, I’ve cleaned off my nightstand and there is no stack, just one lone book. So this book‘s chances of getting read have improved dramatically. Plus, my children are three years older than they were when I purchased it, and I’m more interested than ever in knowing what kind of wisdom it can impart.

Crazy Kids Bible Devotional: Jesse Tree Day 5

Children's Bible Study
Kids Daily Devotional Jesse Tree Advent

The kids with my precious grandmother, who is mentioned in the podcast

Yay! We’ve made to Day 5 of our Kids Bible Devotional Jesse Tree series! If you (or you and your kids) are following along with us, we hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are. I really feel like the chance to hit the highlights of God’s story over this period of advent really helps cement into my children’s hearts and minds the idea that God always, always, always wants us to be with Him; to be a part of His story. I don’t understand why God made human beings in the first place (it’s the number one question on my list!), but I believe wholeheartedly that He did and that He has loved us from the beginning and will love us to the end. He loves us with a never changing, unending love that we can’t possibly fully understand. He wants us to have a chance to be redeemed and restored to Him. From the very first time that people chose to disobey Him, He has had a plan to win us back. While that plan doesn’t end with Jesus’ birth, taking the time this month to walk through the Old Testament and into the New and see how God fulfills promise after promise, how He uses the smallest and most insignificant characters in important ways to accomplish His purposes, and how He loves us . . . really LOVES us, is so precious. Our children could cover all those same lessons in a Sunday Bible class, and probably have, but reading and listening to them one day after another helps them to see the pattern of love and care that God has woven so delicately into His story. 

By the way, if you’re looking for a Bible Storybook to use with younger children, I cannot recommend the Jesus Storybook Bible enough.  While I am THRILLED that my children are now both reading well enough to read an actual Bible on their own (see comment below about the CEB version that our family enjoys using), we used the Jesus Storybook Bible for our devotional time (sporadic though it was) last year and it is wonderful on SO many levels. I had thought my children were getting a little old for a storybook Bible when I happened to see a copy of the Jesus Storybook Bible with audio CDs on sale at one of the booths at our local homeschool convention. We love to listen to audio books around here, so I decided to go ahead and purchase it just to have those to add to our listening collection. I’m so very glad that I did! The narrator on the CDs is WONDERFUL and the illustrations in the Storybook Bible are just really beautiful. It’s called the Jesus Storybook Bible because it shows the story of Jesus all through the Bible and it does a lovely and touching job of doing so. One of my favorite stories in it is “The Girl No One Wanted,” which is the story of Jacob, Rachel and Leah. I don’t think I’ve ever read the story of Leah in another Bible Storybook and it is handled in such a wonderful way in this one, that I came to better understand and appreciate her story myself. I want to give every new mom I know a copy of this beautiful book (along with the CDs!). There are also videos and and a DVD now. Some of the videos from the DVD are available for viewing on the publisher’s youtube channel.
