This Olympics many Olympians have been giving the glory to God who has allowed them to compete through Tweeting. If you do not know what Twitter is it is basically little status updates that people can post any time, any place. Here is an example Tweet from Allyson Felix.
If you would like to see more Tweets from other Olympians here is the website:
Reading these Tweets to our children could be a great chance to teach them to give the glory to God. To see these athletes they are seeing on T.V. now give praise to the one who blessed them with these skills, is such a wonderful model. In our society that is such a rare thing, so often we are taught that we alone accomplished it when in reality without God’s mercy we would never have accomplished it. Don’t pass up this wonderful teaching moment!
If you like what you read, check out our children’s book, Hooked on the Book, on this website. It is great for parents and kids because it provides the Big Story of God’s miraculous plan for His children in all 66 books in the Bible including colorful illustrations, rhymes and a surprise on every page.
