FREE Daily Devo for Kids

The Daily Devos for Kids has been discontinued until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Do you want your kids to learn to read the Bible on their own? If your kids can read, they can read the Bible. In this new FREE series, Nancy Ruth will teach kids (and anyone new to the Bible) how to read God’s Word on their own.

Each day, kids will be challenged to read a few verses of Scripture and answer the same three questions:

  • What does it say?
  • What does it mean?
  • How does that impact me?

Links will also be provided to relevant supplemental material.

Remember, it’s not about always getting the “right answer.” Just pray, read what the Bible says, and think about it.

Let’s get started! (A sample week is provided below.)

Context (What happened in last week’s verses)

In Luke 1:1-4, we learned that Luke carefully put together what is in the book of Luke. He did it so what we would know the truth of what happened.

In Luke 1:5-17, we learned that Zachariah is a priest. He and his wife Elizabeth couldn’t have children. One day, when Zachariah was doing his job as a priest, an angel of the Lord appeared to him. The angel said Zachariah and Elizabeth would have a baby boy. His name was supposed to be John. This baby had an important job. He was supposed to tell people to turn back to God.

Daily Devo for Monday, 5/4/20 – Luke 1:18-20

Always begin with prayer. Ask God to teach you as you read His Word today.

Read Luke 1:18-20. In these verses, the angel tells Zechariah how he’ll know the angel told the truth.

Now, look back at what you read. What do these verses say? The angel just told Zechariah some wonderful news! How did Zachariah answer the angel? What was the name of the angel talking to Zechariah? What did God tell the angel to do? What will happen to Zechariah? Why? Will God do what He said He’d do?

Now, let’s think about all that. What do these verses mean? How did the angel know that Zechariah did not believe him? Why should Zechariah have trusted that what the angel said was true? What do you think Zechariah thought about during those months when he could not speak? We can’t know for sure, but it’s fun to think about.

Finally, let’s think about how that applies to us. How do these verses impact you? The most important way God speaks to us is by reading the Bible. The main thing the Bible tells us is about the good news of Jesus. Can we trust what the Bible says about Jesus? Why or why not? What are some ways a person shows that they believe in Jesus? Do you believe in Jesus? If so, how can people tell? If you’re not sure yet, keep reading the Bible. You’ll learn more about Jesus.

End with another prayer. Talk to God about what you learned. Ask Him to continue to show you how what you read impacts you and changes the way you do things.

Daily Devo for Tuesday, 5/5/20 – Luke 1:21-23

Always begin with prayer. Ask God to teach you as you read His Word today.

Read Luke 1:21-23. In these verses, we learn what happened when Zechariah came out of the temple.

Now, look back at what you read. What do these verses say? Remember that Zechariah spoke to the angel while he was doing his job in the temple. What were the people doing outside? What were they wondering? What was different about Zechariah when he came out of the temple? How did Zechariah tell them what happened? Then what did Zechariah do?

Now, let’s think about all that. What do these verses mean? Have you ever played a game where you couldn’t talk? Is it hard or easy to talk to people when you can’t speak? Why? How do you think Zechariah felt? Do you think Zechariah would remember what the angel said? How do you know?

Finally, let’s think about how that applies to us. How do these verses impact you? Zechariah was different after spending time with God’s messenger. You are spending time with God right now. Take some time to pray. Is there something God wants you to do differently? It may not be to stop talking. Does God want you to change how you talk to people? Does God want you to change how you treat people? Does God want you to change something else? Ask Him.

End with another prayer. Talk to God about what you learned. Ask Him to continue to show you how what you read impacts you and changes the way you do things.

Daily Devo for Wednesday, 5/6/20 – Luke 1:24-25

Always begin with prayer. Ask God to teach you as you read His Word today.

Read Luke 1:8-10. In these verses, Elizabeth reacts to what God did.

  • When someone becomes pregnant, that means they are going to have a baby.

Now, look back at what you read. What do these verses say? Was Elizabeth going to have a baby? What did she do when she found out? What did Elizabeth say about God? What did God do for her?

Now, let’s think about all that. What do these verses mean? Did God answer Elizabeth’s prayers? How do you know? How did Elizabeth respond?

  • Elizabeth praised God. “Praise” is when we thank God for who He is and what He does.

Finally, let’s think about how that applies to us. How do these verses impact you? What has God done for you? God give us food to eat, a place to sleep, and people that care about us. Take some time to praise God for who He is and what He does for you.

End with another prayer. Talk to God about what you learned. Ask Him to continue to show you how what you read impacts you and changes the way you do things.

Daily Devo for Thursday, 5/7/20 – Luke 1:26-30

Always begin with prayer. Ask God to teach you as you read His Word today.

Read Luke 1:26-30. In these verses, Gabriel has a second message from God.

Now, look back at what you read. What do these verses say? Who did Gabriel talk to? What do we know about Mary? What did the angel say to Mary? How did Mary react?

  • Compare Luke 1:29-30 with Luke 1:12-13. How did Mary and Zechariah both react when they saw the angel?

Now, let’s think about all that. What do these verses mean? What did God think about Mary? How do you know? Do you know what the angel Gabriel is about to tell Mary? Mary is going to have a baby too. Her baby’s name will be Jesus.

  • Mary was part of King David’s family. Do you know why that was important? Read 2 Samuel 7:12-13. What did God promise King David? These verses are talking about Jesus.

Finally, let’s think about how that applies to us. How do these verses impact you? God knew everything about Mary. He knows everything about you too. Do you think God is pleased with you? Why or why not? Because of Jesus, all of us can be blessed in a special way. What questions do you have about Jesus? Keep those questions where you can find them. Let’s see if we can find the answers as we keep reading the book of Luke.

End with another prayer. Talk to God about what you learned. Ask Him to continue to show you how what you read impacts you and changes the way you do things.

Daily Devo for Friday, 5/8/20 – Luke 1:30-33

Always begin with prayer. Ask God to teach you as you read His Word today.

Yesterday we saw that an angel appeared to Mary. Read Luke 1:30-33.

Now, look back at what you read. What do these verses say? What was going to happen to Mary? What was she supposed to do? What did the angel say about Jesus?

Now, let’s think about all that. What do these verses mean? Jesus is part of some important families. He would be called the Son of whom? Jesus would be king like His relative. Which one? Who else was in Jesus’ family? (See verse 33.)

  • Mary was part of King David’s family. Do you know why that was important? Read 2 Samuel 7:12-13. What did God promise King David? These verses are talking about Jesus.
  • Mary was part of Jacob’s family. Do you know why that was important? Read Genesis 28:14. What did God promise Jacob? The end of the verse says, “All the nations on earth will be blessed because of you and your children after you” (NIRV). That includes us. We are blessed because of Jesus. Jesus is part of Jacob’s family.

Finally, let’s think about how that applies to us. How do these verses impact you? John 1:12 says, “Some people did accept him and did believe in his name. He gave them the right to become children of God” (NIRV). How can you become part of Jesus’ family?

End with another prayer. Talk to God about what you learned. Ask Him to continue to show you how what you read impacts you and changes the way you do things.
