WOW! Can you believe this is the last of the 10 commandments for kids! It's hard to believe it's been three months since I started this Bible memory verses project for the grand kids. I'm so excited to hear that a couple of churches have been using it for VBS or Sunday School. What a blessing to watch God at work through this! And it's not quite over. Next week I've got another set of two commandments for the grand children and all of us. Be sure to pop back. 🙂
You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor. Exodus 20:17
Can't you just picture one little bird in the smallest house looking at the birds in the bigger houses and wishing HE had a bigger house? Of course not. God has promised we are more valuable than the birds in the sky. So if they don't have to worry about being taken care of, we DEFINITELY don't have to worry about being taken care of. I have to tell you, just typing this was such an encouragement to me. I pray it will be a blessing to each of you and your kids and grandchildren as well.
That's why I added the two extra Scriptures to encourage us to rejoice always and be content. And YES, I have to constantly work on that as well. Won't it be nice when we are safely in heaven and the spiritual battles are over! Until then, though:
Rejoice in the Lord always, again I will say, Rejoice!…I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. Philippians 4:4, 11
