Bible Memory Verses Fun-Teaching The Ten Commandments to Our Children & Grandchildren-3

The 10 Commandments for the Sandwich Generation granny nanny grand kids & your grand children

The third commandment, You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, is one that seems to be especially unpopular right now, even among Christians – whether they are saying the actual words or using the very popular "omg." Then again, that has become so common, a lot of our grandchildren don't even realize what it originally stood for. So this little gingerbread girl clipart is here to remind them that INSTEAD of using God's Name in vain, we need to be using His holy name with thanksgiving in EVERYTHING we do and say. A good Bible memory verses lesson for our grand children, and a good example we in the Sandwich Generation can set for them.

This cute country gingerbread girl clipart helps the Sandwich Generation in teaching the ten commandments Bible memory verses to children and grandchildren

 

You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain. Exodus 20:7a

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17

And yes, I deliberately chose this cute country clipart because she did NOT have lips. I thought it would make for fun activities for grandparents and their younger grandchildren as we have them draw the lips in while talking about what comes OUT of those lips. And what a great time to also talk about what comes in and out of our minds. Those thoughts that are wrong need to be confessed to God, just as much as the words do. This could open up such positive doors in a variety of ways. Can you think of other ideas? We'd love to hear them. 🙂

Don't forget, you can find more encouraging Bible verses and pictures at Internet Cafe Devotions for Word-Filled Wednesday for the Sandwich Generation, to encourage us all as we are caring for elderly parents and caring for kids or babysitting grandchildren.

  1. Unfortunately, you are so right. His name gets used in vain without younger generations even realizing what they are doing. Love the gingerbread girl!


  2. Thank you so much for stopping by @ Jeremiah 29:11 and leaving such a sweet comment! HOPE you have a great day!


  3. A good verse. I took Bible when I was in high school (yes, I know that just about tells my age) and our Bible teacher told us about “omg” and a lot of other words that are dervived from God or Jesus and when used are taking God’s name in vain. I have never forgotten that and don’t ever remember using those words as I did not want to break that commandment.


  4. I saw someone on the TV program where they update the house in 60 mins express his shock and pleasure without anything but……Oh…how wonderful
    It was so refreshing.
    I get so angry sometimes when I hear a “twit”(forgive my judgmental attitude) say Oh My God and I feel like weighing in with, who on earth are you talking about.
    When some of my friends mention the Lord’s name I say, very pleasantly, please do not disturb the good Lord if you really do not mean it. it does cut down the language over time.


  5. Hey Kaye,

    Great to drop by again! This was incredible. You are so talented and so creative.

    Love this word…Thanks so very much.

    Have a blessed day♥


  6. This is fabulous. As a parent with four children who are blessed to have all four grandparents in their lives, I think your idea is great. We have just finished studying the third commandment with our children and your post is such a timely blessing to read!


  7. love the idea, hope i can do this when my baby grows and i hope i can be a good example to her not to use God’s name in vain. Thank you for this verse, it reminds me once again that our God in Holy and must never use His name in vain


  8. That is just precious, Kaye. Your grandchildren are so blessed to have such a wonderful Grandmother teaching them the Word of God. Blessings ~


  9. Thanks for sharing ideas for entertaining and teaching the grandchildren about God’s word. I keep my grands too, so I am sure I will be back to your site to help entertain them this summer.
