Yes, it’s Wednesday. Sorry about the late post. This week, we memorized a verse of scripture. I am very forgetful…..very… Kids can be, too (especially if it’s “boring”). I have come up with a way to get kids involved in a craft while memorizing scripture at the same time.
Scripture Memory Book:
I used the following verse –
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.” -Psalm 19:14
You Will Need:
- Construction Paper
- Staple or Metal Circle Clips (If you do this, you will need a hole puncher)
- Break the verse up into parts (you want to be able to draw pictures about each part). This is how I broke up my verse: Let the words of my mouth (BREAK 1) and the meditation of my heart (BREAK 2) be acceptable (BREAK 4) in thy sight (BREAK 5) O LORD (BREAK 6), my rock (BREAK 7) and my redeemer.
- Draw the pictures! We drew a mouth for our first part, a heart for part 2, a square with positive words for part 3, “God’s eye” for break 4, a letter ‘o’ with Jesus written across it, a rock with the word ‘my’ written on it, and finally a cross with ‘my’ written on it. The pictures explain them better. 🙂
- Put ’em all together! Align your pictures in order, and staple or hole punch them. Have fun memorizing!
