Preparing Hearts for His Glory: Bible


Today I wanted to do a feature on our Bible Study. In Heart of Dakota's Preparing Hearts for His Glory, the Bible memory work in each unit is from the book of Psalms. We are memorizing passages from Psalms through repetition, copywork, actions, and music. We also listen to selections from Lead Me to the Rock by Kelly Crawford, which correspond to the Bible memory verses.

So far we have memorized Psalm 1:1-6, Psalm 127:3-5, and Psalm 34:1-9 (mostly in part to the wonderful CD!!) I wanted to share our lesson from a few weeks ago.

Psalm 127:3-5 - Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Children are a blessing from the Lord. Parents are responsible to train children and teach them the Lord's ways, so that they will be like arrows flying straight and true. Once an arrow is out of the hand, can you direct it? Why is it important that children be directed to the right mark when they are young? After a child has gone into the world, will it be hard to direct him/her then? Why is it important that children be trained according to God's word? It is important so that when they go out into the world, God can direct them.

I think we both learned something important during this lesson!!
