26 Bible Verses You Can Teach Your Child in a Year

One for every letter of the Alphabet!

I started teaching Bible Verses to BigG when he was just 3.  Working at a rate of roughly 1 verse every 2 weeks it would take a year to learn 26 – or one for every letter of the alphabet.

Here he is after learning his first two verses. ADORABLE.

I just can’t handle that cuteness!   So here are the 26 verses we learned.  On the weeks the verse was pretty simple and he picked it up quickly, we would spend a few days going back through all of them we had learned up to that point for review.  It doesn’t do any good to run through them if they don’t remember B by the time they get to Z.

I will say that, I didn’t really keep up with the translations we used.  Most are going to be NIV, some KJV and some might be NASB.  I bounced around versions to make the words easy for young children and sometimes to make the verse fit the letter (for example, Psalm 119:105 in the KJV says “Thy Word” which is great for the letter ‘T’ but in the NIV it says “Your Word” – doesn’t work for T).

So after that disclaimer, here’s the verses:

A – As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15

B – Be kind to one another and build each other up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

C – Create in me a pure heart, O God. Psalm 51:10

D – Do to others as you would have them do to you.  Luke 6:31

E – Every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.  Romans 14:11

F – Fear not for I am with you.  Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you.  Isaiah 41:10

I have to stop right here and show you the video of BigG (when he was quite little!) saying Isaiah 41:10.

I told you the cuteness was too much!

G – Go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone.  Mark 16:15

H – Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Deuteronomy 6:4

I – In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:6

J – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.  Hebrews 13:8

K – Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.  Psalm 34:13

L – Let us love one another for love comes from God.  1 John 4:7

M – Man shall not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.  Matthew 4:4

N – Nothing is impossible with God.  Luke 1:37

O – O, God, You are my God.  I earnestly seek you.  Psalm 63:1

P – Praise the Lord.  Give thanks to the Lord for He is good.  Psalm 106:1

Q – Be Quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.  James 1:19

R – Rejoice in the Lord always.  And again I say, Rejoice!  Philippians 4:4

S –  Store your treasures in Heaven where moths and rust cannot destroy and thieves do not break in and steal.  Matthew 6:20

T –  Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.  Psalm 119:105

U – Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it.  Proverbs 16:22

V – Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.  John 6:47

W – Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.  Psalm 56:3

X – Let us eXamine our ways and test them.  Let us return to the Lord.  Lamentations 3:40

Y – You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  Matthew 5:14

Z – Zacchaeus, come down immediately.  I must stay at your house today.  Luke 19:5

There you have it!  January is right around the corner so it’s a great time to get started on learning verses!  By this time next year, your child (and you!) will know 26!
