Some kids are incredibly shy and afraid. They cower whenever anyone they don’t know looks at them or even talks to them. Try something new? Yeah, right. How do we get our fearful kids to stop being so fearful? The first step may be to look at ourselves. Are we living in fear? If so, change. The Bible has SO many verses telling us NOT to be afraid. THEN model it. If that’s NOT you, then start talking about all the places in the Bible that tells us NOT to be afraid. Talk about all the places they show fear, then maybe you could roll-play. Act like WE’RE afraid. Let the kids encourage us with these verses. Then roll-play how to pray. A lesson for life.
