My son, Luke

Psalms 1 “1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the
wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the
mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law
he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by the streams
of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not
wither. Whatever he does prospers. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like
chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand
in the judgment, nor the sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6
For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the
wicked will perish.” (NIV)

My son, Luke, has a test on this verse today. He and I studied this
scripture last night. We broke it down verse by verse. We read to
each other many times. After, studying and explaining it to him and
repeating over and over, we were both blessed by the outcome. Luke and
I could remember this powerful and amazing verse in God’s Living Word.
I really enjoyed studying God’s Word with Luke last night. I loved
watching Luke repeat each verse one by one. What a wonderful blessing
to see a child studying the word of God.

  1. CF, You are doing a totally scriptural exercise as you sit with your children and search the Scriptures, meditating and reciting them to one another.
    Deuteronomy 11:19 says, ” And you shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 20 And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates, 21 that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth.
    And Deuteronomy 6: 6-7 says, “And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart; 7 and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
    In Proverbs it says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, according to his bent and when he is older he will not depart from the WAY.”
    Good going, CF!!

  2. How did Luke do today? Yes, it is a blessing to see children studying and living the Word of God.

    I would like to recommend a great site for you and Luke to enjoy together by Rena Oynes, http://www.thedailylily.org/?p=1540

    Hope you will join. I know Rena would love the interaction with the children.

  3. I’m not sure how Luke did on his test. He felt he did well. He was able to recite the scripture to my mom last night.

  4. Sounds like Luke is planting the word in his heart as he studies, memorizes and recites. And Psalm 119:11 gives all of us good counsel by telling us to hide that word in our hearts so we won’t sin against God.

  5. I visited JD & Ms Rena ,again, on their site and this looks just like the kind of challenge Luke and Noah love and do well in. They can hone their fine minds on memorizing the books of the Bible and other super facts about the Bible and Jesus. Hey you two bright little men,…go for the challenge on JD’s site!!

  6. CF what a wonderful thing to do – to teach your children scripture. We never will know how important the scriptures are in their lives as they draw from them from their well of knowledge for encouragement and wisdom in the things of life they must walk through. I hope your children will join JD and I. My sons use to play WHO’s WHO IN THE BIBLE when they were about your sons ages. This was a game I came up for Sunday School. They would come up with other who’s who as well. They played the game with their friends repetedly. This game is in the archives of the Children’s Category on this site and Debi has the plants of the bible. Have fun teaching your children. They will never forget it. Coming soon to JD’s site will be stories from the bible done in a creative way.
