Love God with all of your being!
If you’re new here, each week we all learn about and memorize a Bible verse together. We’ve put the verse(s) into song to help you learn the verse and recall it during your day. If you’d like to see the archives of all the verses we’ve done so far, you can find our posts here and a list of all the YouTube videos here. We’ll also be giving a family update on what has happened in the past week.
As it is, I’m writing this post an hour after I would have wanted it to be published, and we didn’t have a new video created for this week, so I’m “cheating” and going back to an old video that hasn’t been featured on the blog yet. We’ve also been a bit inconsistent in our memorization (it’s like we’re human and make mistakes or something), so this gives us a little bit of time to catch up. We hope you all understand.
Scripture Memory Song
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
Deuteronomy 6:5-6 (ESV)
This verse is all about our relationship with God. It’s not just his job to love us, we need to love him as well. And not only do we need to love him, we need to love him more than we love anything else. We need to love him with everything we’ve got. He is to be our absolute top priority, and not just out of obligation, but because we know he loves us and we understand how amazing he is.
The second part of this verse is talking about keeping God’s Word on your heart, which is part of the reason we do these memory verses. The verses that immediately proceed after these verses are about talking about and teaching God’s commands throughout your every day life, so don’t just hold them in your mind. Teach them to others. Don’t forget, though, that there is grace: you may fail at these things more often than not, but God loves and forgives you, so just get right back up and try again, asking God to guide you to do better and give you the strength of will to do as God asks.
