Jesus often spoke in parables for those He was talking to would understand what it was that He was trying to explain. It stands to reason then that when we ourselves are speaking to our children that parables could, in fact, be useful. After all, they don’t always understand the principles that we are trying to explain to them when we simply say something. However, when we use stories then those principles seem to come alive.
Recently I received a book in the mail that has become not only my children’s favorite but also one of mine as well. Parable Treasury, written by Liz Curtiz Higgs is filled with 4 different parable stories that pertain to different holidays. Each story is colorfully illustrated by Nancy Munger.
All of the parables in the book allow you to follow a farmer and his family as they explain the true meaning of each holiday and they point them all back to Christ. You will also find different Bible verses on each page that make this book acceptable for older children as well. We have found that this book has hugely blessed our home library.
The parables that are included are:
The Parable of the Lily
The Sunflower Parable
The Pumpkin Patch Parable
The Pine Tree Parable
In order to get us to understand God uses parables all throughout the Bible. It stands to reason that if we want our children to understand certain principles that we ourselves need to use the same concept.
