Friday Fridge Texts :: Teaching Scripture to your Children

God’s Word is a huge part of our daily life and as parents we believe that it is primarily our task to train our children to love and cherish it and then make it a part of their lives.

Learning texts from the Bible is a great way for children to make God’s Word their own. Learning it by rote, they can hide it away in their hearts until the moment they need it. Memorising texts from a young age, along with studying the scriptures by way of Bible stories together as a family, builds a firm foundation on which they will be able to rely on for life.

In the past we have recited bible texts as a family, but now as the kids are a little older, we now use the ‘Fridge Text’ approach.  Many-a-time the fridge door is open throughout the day, giving  ample opportunities for the text to be read and memorised.

But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.  2 Timothy 3: 14-17

What text to choose? You can use a daily reader for inspiration, a children’s devotion book or otherwise a great list like this one from the “To Love, Honour and Vacuum” blog.

Got a white fridge? Use a black or coloured White board marker or coloured chalk marker.

Got a stainless fridge? Use a white or coloured chalk marker.  I got ours from Spotlight.

Need some inspiration to make it look nice? Have a look at Pinterest and search for Bible Texts, or otherwise Google Image search “Bible text poster art”.

The possibilities are endless.  Get creative, get teaching!

Is this just for families with kids? No! If you want to learn a few more scriptures, try this!

      yes, my handwriting is neatish. It’s from back in the day when I handwrote countless worksheets at school. It’s funny, because every now and then posters and work that I wrote years ago pop up at school and I cringe. Primary school teacher handwriting. Have a nice weekend Lisa!x
