We are blessed to have a teacher at our church named Miss Shirley, who is very committed to helping our kiddos memorize Scripture. I posted a video of Caleb reciting Psalm 23 last August. Ava joined his Sunday School class in the fall, and they recently recited Matthew 6:1-18 in front of the church.
All of this is by memory. They’re not reading a poster. They’re just reciting what they’ve already committed to memory.
I’m so thankful that my kiddos are hiding God’s Word in their hearts…and even more exciting is that they already apply what they’ve memorized to situations in everyday life! That makes a mama’s heart happy!
So, here’s the video of our FHBC 1st and 2nd graders reciting Matthew 6:1-18…
I believe Scripture memory is so important, and one of the things I love about the 1st and 2nd grade Sunday School teacher at our church is her commitment to helping our kiddos memorize passages of Scripture.
Earlier this year, Caleb memorized Psalm 27, and then a passage in Romans.
This summer, our pastors did a sermon series on Psalm 23, so the class memorized that chapter.
They recited it in church this past Sunday. It brings tears to my eyes to watch young children reciting God’s Word!
Have you been working your Scripture memory together?
So far it’s been simple for our family. The first two verses are ones most of us already knew. But it’s been great to have these simple truths posted in our home, for us to remember and discuss and focus on.
So if you haven’t joined in, it’s certainly not too late! (For more details, visit Cindy’s blog.)
Here we go with our “C” verse:
“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Does anyone have a creative way to work on this verse? Please share!
