Raising a Christian family in today’s culture can be overwhelming to say the least. There is no better way to raise them up than to help them memorize Bible verses from the time they are young all the way through high school. Our favorite way to bring in scriptures is to do it in our parenting, as our children are dealing with things that make them struggle daily.
Top 10 Bible Verses for Your Family to Memorize
There are so many verses that I could pull from, however these seemed to be the ones that we used a lot to correct and encourage our children, and ourselves as we learned to walk our faith daily.
Joshua 24:15b – “…as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Ephesians 4:32 – “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.”
Luke 6:31 – “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Romans 8:28 – “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Philippians 4:8 – “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Psalms 19:14 – “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Mark 12:30 – “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”
As our children become more and more accustom to the verses that we use in difference situations, I’m amazed how easily they are able to share with us verses that are relevant for our situation or theirs.
Making a focus on Bible verses memorization is always a beneficial thing for a family, but I know it isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
