Last summer we instituted a scripture memorization program with the kiddos. We’re back at it again this summer.
I was kind of unprepared the first week so I just took I Cor 13 and broke it down into 3-4 verse chunks.
Predictably this brought some whining and “it’s too hard” pleas from one particular child. I gently reminded her that last summer they did this exact thing and she was perfectly capable.
On the other hand, one of the other kids asked, “What happens if we memorize the whole thing?”
So I promised an extra hour of electronics time to anyone who had the whole chapter memorized by Friday at dinner.
Three out of the four (including the aforementioned whiner) had it down.
I put Mark to work on the schedule for the rest of the summer. We’ve coordinated it with I John since that’s what our small group is studying and the adults are going to memorize it to. I’ll put our list down below as well as a few other passages Mark selected in case anyone wants to use them.
But first you have to see this cutie…(watch til the end)
