From age nine and up, kids are becoming more and more adept at understanding what Bible verses mean and how to apply the verses to their lives. I’ve created this simple study format to direct children, step-by-step, in understanding and applying Scripture.
The section of the sheet, with the nine application questions, is adapted from Pastor Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life. He uses the acronym “SPACEPETS” to remember the questions. This gets the kids really thinking about how the verse applies to their own lives. I like the way he stresses that each of those questions contains a verb, and it is something they do.
