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
