Josiah was a king in the Old Testament, starting at age 8! And he listened to God from the very beginning.

Key Points:

  • Josiah was only eight years old when he became king. 2 Kings 22:1-2
  • Idols are things that are not God. 2 Kings 23:2-3
  • Josiah read God’s Word and obeyed it.
  • The Bible has God’s words written on it so you can read it, obey it, and share it! 2 Timothy 3:16

Memory Verse:

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

Talk About It
  1. Are you an “expert” at something your parents know nothing about? (science, TV show, legos, a sport) Have you tried to teach them? How did it go?
  2. Kids: How old was Josiah when he became king? What rules would you make if you became president?
  3. Parents: Have you had bad teachers or bosses in your life? How did you handle that?
  4. Read 2 Timothy 3:16. Kids: Why is the Bible so important to people who love God? How does it help us?
  5. Parents: How has reading the Bible helped you in your life?
  6. Parents and Kids: What’s the difference between hearing versus obeying God’s word? What does it take to be obedient?
