Remember the story of the tortoise and the hare? The hare was great for the short term. It took the patient perseverance of the tortoise – the stick-to-it-iveness he showed over the long term – to win the race. What a great illustration for our Bible memory verses activities for grandparents and their grandchildren from 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and 13.
Love…it always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:7b
Not only is this tortoise a great help for our Bible memory verses for our grand children, it's a wonderful reminder for all of us to "keep on keeping on." Whether we are caring for elderly parents, helping with the grandkids, dealing with our Baby Boomers Generation health issues, or still raising our own little ones, it's never easy. But it's so worthwhile to always hope and always persevere! As I love to sing to my grandchildren,
Fix your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His Wonderful face,
and the things of the world will grow strangely dim,
in the light of His glory and grace!
Fixing our eyes means keeping them there – for the long term! 🙂
