Bible Memory Verses Fun: Giraffes Help To Remind Us That Love is Not Rude!

The next in our set of Bible Memory Verses activities for all of us Sandwich Generation grandparents and their grandchildren is:

Love is - 1 Corinthians 13 - not proud - not self-seeking


It is not rude,

it is not self-seeking.1 Corinthians 13:5a (NIV)

Isn't that a fun photo and verse to share with our grandkids in this Scripture memorization project?  This granny nanny had a great time showing it off to the grandkids and enjoying their giggles! 🙂 For more Inspirational Bible verses, words, and photos of encouragement, be sure to pop over to Internet Cafe Devotions for Word-Filled Wednesday.

    That is a fun picture to pair with that verse for kids — left a smile on my face!

  5. What a fun and thoughtful granny you are….this picture really brings this scripture to life for the young ones….and the not so young ones, too!

  6. I love it. Very clever and just right to stick in adult as well as children’s minds. I feel a little better for using poor Moggie once again…LOL.

  16. YAY, GlowinGirl, That’s exactly what I’m going for – Faces full of smiles, and hearts full of God’s Word! 🙂

  17. 🙂 Karen. VERY true! Now when I’m trying to remember which order the verses go, I’m finding it is really helping to remember – oh yes, the peacock was Love is not proud, the giraffe is not rude. I may have to do another series for the other parts of the verses 🙂 🙂 🙂

  18. Hi Ozjane, I LOVED the photo of Moggie in prison! Such a great illustration for a delightful Word-Filled Wednesday devotional. 🙂 Thanks for popping by!

  22. Hi Cathy, Thanks for popping in! It’s been fun doing this! 🙂

  23. Hi Laurie, They are too! And so is this granny nanny – always a good thing, especially since I have the memory you’d expect from a member of the refuse-to-admit-to-aging Baby Boomers Generation 🙂 🙂 🙂 I need all the memory cues help I can get! 🙂

  24. That is so cute. I like how the giraffe is sticking out its tongue, something a child would do when they are being rude. What a great way to teach them. Thanks and God bless.

  25. Hi thanks for your comment on my nannykim blog. Your blog look interesting. My almost 2 year old grandson and 3 year old granddaughter memorize verses each week. They use pictures, and hand signs both of which they make up. They practice at each meal. During Easter time they would get a jelly bean after supper when they said their verse. My grandson got to saying the verse with the word jellybean immediately after! They still do the jellybean, but I hope he doesn’t think it is part of the verse!! ha!

  26. Hi Brian, thank you 🙂 It did give us all big giggles, I must admit. 🙂

  27. Hi NannyKim, LOL – how adorable!!! It is cute what they put together in their sweet little minds. And such a blessing to be grandparents who get to share God’s word with our grandkids! 🙂 Have a blessed week.

  28. Thank you Joan – you gave me a big smile after a difficult time fighting the computer. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  29. What a WONDERFUL poster to teach your grandkids this important lesson in a way that’s easy for them to remember. Thanks so much for sharing the link!…
    Hugs and blessings,
