Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – The Confusion Of Languages

Teaching children about the Bible miracles is important as it helps them to see how God can get anything done. How powerful He is. Here is an easy way to do that.

Let’s focus on one of the great Bible miracles found in the book of Genesis.  The story of the Confusion of Languages.

Ask the children who knows what the Tower of Babel is?

“They began saying to each other, ‘Let’s make bricks and harden them with fire.’ Then they said, ‘Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky’.”  (Genesis 11:4)

Ask the children why God was against this tower?  

“This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.” (Genesis 11:4)

God wanted mankind to fill the whole earth and take care of it, if they stayed in one place they wouldn’t fulfill His command.

So what did God do to get the people to scatter across the earth?  

“Come, let’s go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other. In that way, the LORD scattered them all over the world, and they stopped building the city.”   (Genesis 11:7, 8)

Ask the children why they called the city and tower Babel?  

“That is why the city was called Babel, because that is where the LORD confused the people with different languages. In this way he scattered them all over the world.  (Genesis 11:9)

Help your kids see how the Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world. Glory to Him!!
