Its never too late or too early to play Bible games with your children. I can imagine that Jesus was a perfect example for playing games through Solomon. Just take a look at some of the messages written for all times in the Book of Proverbs. For example, how about this ‘game‘ taken from Proverbs 7:1-4.
“My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:”
The Lord (through Solomon) is suggesting a playful way to remember the Torah, the first 5 books of Moses. So, I am taking a hint from Solomon and asking you to play a game with your children and find all the Names for Jesus below.
We kids just love to play games with each other and also with our parents.
Search and find only the part of the name that’s printed in all capital letters at the bottom.

My prayer for all mankind…
Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove: I sincerely undertake from this day forward to put forth a concerted effort with the help and strength of the Holy Spirit to live through You by acknowledging our children in prayer, good deeds, expressing praise and adoration for their contributions and accomplishments. Also, to encourage their desires to please and obey their teachers, parents, and walk in the ways of their biblical teachings.
Please do not hesitate to use me, Lord Jesus, to share your message to others in those places where you have assigned me. Allow me to be versatile but honest in my approach and direct my path just like you did Isaiah and those other prophets in days gone by. Cause Your Spirit to come upon me so that it will be a positive message to relate to the children that will be remembered until their traveling days are over.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight my Savior, Strength and my Redeemer. Amen!
Scripture Lesson: “The righteous man (woman) leads a blameless life; blessed are his (her) children after [them]. Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his (her) conduct is pure and right.” Proverbs 20:7, 11
