Teach Children the Bible is Not About Them

I just read the most wonderful article which Ann Voskamp at Holy Experience linked to the other day.  The article is Teach Children the Bible is Not About Them by Sally Lloyd-Jones at Desiring God.  A quote:

"That the Bible isn’t mainly about me, and what I should be doing. It’s about God and what he has done

That the Bible is most of all a story — the story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them.

That — in spite of everything, no matter what, whatever it cost him — God won’t ever stop loving his children… with a wonderful, Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

That the Bible, in short, is a Story — not a Rule Book — and there is only one Hero in the Story."

It's made me really think about my approach to reading the Bible with my children...
