About These Preschool Bible Devotions

It is never too early to start teaching your kids the Bible.

We are commanded by God to teach our children the ways of the Lord.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

God’s words are powerful. His message is life giving. Even the youngest child can be taught that God is the maker of all things and that He loves them. As your kids grow, you can share the awesome stories of God’s miracles like Jesus Feeding the 5,000 and Jesus Walking on Water.

My word that goes out from my mouth.  It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11

Bible Verse

Exodus 17:8-13

 8 The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”  10 So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. 

11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.

Talking Points

We all need help sometimes.  God often provides the help we need from friends or even strangers.  We need to always be talking to God so we know that when the help our friends or strangers offer is from Him. God gives us friends to help us.


  • Has God helped you do something recently?
  • Do you have a friend God has given you to help you?
  • Has He ever used a friend to help you do something?  
  • When have you helped someone do something? 
  • Do you like helping them?

Have the child stretch up their arms as high as they can, holding the wooden spoon, while you sing the song below.  The child should keep their arms stretched up as long as they can.  When they get tired, have the adult or another child hold their arms for them.  When you get done, tell them God sent a friend to help them.

Song  (Sung to the tune of Frere Jacques)

Have you had a kindess shown?

Pass it on. Pass it on.

God wants you so share it. God wants you to share.

Pass it on. Pass it on.

Wasn’t meant for you alone;

Pass it on. Pass it on.

God wants you to share it. God wants you to share it.

Pass it on. Pass it on.

Let it travel though the years,

Pass it on. Pass it on.

God wants you to share it. God wants you to share it.

Pass it on. Pass it on.

Let it wipe another’s tears,

Pass it on. Pass it on.

God wants you to share it. God wants you to share it.

Pass it on. Pass it on.


Thank you, God, for giving us help when we need it and even when we don’t. Thank you for providing us with friends and people in our lives you can help us out.
