I. To increase in the child the love and knowledge of God.
II. To give her a spiritual thought from the passage taken.
III. To teach the story of Josiah and the Finding of the Law.
Step I.—Tell the story to the child, only giving the necessary explanations.
Step II.—Read the story in the words of the Bible carefully and slowly with expression.
Step III.—Let the child narrate the account of the Finding of the Law, keeping as far as possible to the words of Scripture. Try to make her feel the lesson without stating it actually, i.e., due reverence for the Word of God and repentance for sin.
