A goal I have for my family this year is to memorize a verse together each month. I want to choose verses that display characteristics I desire to have in myself and in my kids. This is the verse I have chosen for January. Something short and simple but so powerful. If they memorize the verse that is a bonus. More than the memorization I would love to see a heart change, a change in their character because of the verse we are learning. I know it starts with me. Acting justly when I don’t really want to or think it’s necessary. Showing mercy when I’m all “mercied out” for the day. Walking humbling when my pride fills the room. Yes, it starts with me. Thankful He has gone before me and prepared the way.
