Teaching with the Right Emphasis

Need for God


True or false?

God loves me.
God cares for me.
God provides for me.
God hears me when I pray.

It is essential that we teach with the right emphasis. In this short video, David and Sally Michael help us to see the above statements in their proper light and learn how to focus children’s attention on the truth and place the accent on God.


He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.—Colossians 1:15-20 (ESV)
