I love to hear reports of kids who are reading The B-I-B-L-E. One boy (9 years old) recently told me how he was really into reading Nehemiah, about placing guards all around, about getting the wall done, about dealing with bullies. Another boy (also 9 years old) had to read a book for school. He told his teacher that he was going to read The Bible by Jan Harthan. His teacher asked to see the book to be sure it was legitimate. She approved the choice. The boy is nearly done with Volume 3 (Proverbs and Romans) and is understanding it. I love to get such feedback.

Always think about the truth.

"Always try to know the truth. Do not think about lies. Think about the truth. Keep good ideas in your heart. Make good choices. Then you will be thinking right. Do not just do your own thing. Make yourself stay away from bad things. Make yourself do what is right. Then you will have self-control" (Proverbs 23:23, The B-I-B-L-E).

A happy heart is best

"Some people have a crabby heart. They always think about what is bad. They do not care about others. They are not good friends. They make trouble. They start fights. They make others crabby too. But other people have a happy heart. They are kind. They care about others. They think about the good things others do. They do not keep on thinking about the bad things others do. They forgive others" (Proverbs 10:12, The B-I-B-L-E).

Everyone needs to hear the Good News

"I like to do God’s work. I like to tell the Good News. Some people do not know about Jesus. They have never heard the Good News. Those are the places where I like to go. People in other places already know about Jesus. There are churches in some places. I do not go to those places. I want everyone to have a chance to know about Jesus. I want everyone to have a chance to hear the Good News"
(Romans 15:20, The B-I-B-L-E).

Only one way to be right with God

"The way to be right with God is to trust in Jesus. We need to ask him to forgive us for doing bad things. We need to ask him to take away our sins. Then we will be right with God. That is the way for everyone to be saved. It is the same way for all people. Some people are important, and some are not. People have done different bad things. That does not matter. The way to be saved is the same for everyone" (Romans 3:22, The B-I-B-L-E).
