I chose this photo for today's verse, because my grandsons love snakes AND because snakes are so well-known as the animal the devil used to get to Adam and Eve. That is such a perfect example of "delighting in evil." It gives us a good opportunity, then, for a serious talk as part of our Bible memory verses activities for grandparents and their grandchildren.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
1 Corinthians 13: 6
God created snakes, just the same as He created all the other animals – from the cute penguin to a big green FROG to the King of the Beasts to the irritating mosquito. They each have their own reputation, be it good, bad, or indifferent. It's important to teach our grandkids how important "building a good reputation" is, and this is an especially good animal to help with that. This can work especially well in conjunction with yesterday's photo of their Webkinz tiger snake. Two different snakes – two different reputations. Our "behavior" really does make a vital difference! That gives us a double layer of meaning for the Bible memory verses for our grand children for this week.

P.S. If you're interested in getting a Webkinz Tiger Snake for your grandchildren or yourself, you'll need to hurry. It's been retired which means you can only buy it for a limited time, until they run out of them. There's a great price on them at Amazon. If you'd like to check it out, click here. 🙂
