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

Today is the fourth commandment in our Bible series, The 10 Commandments Bible memory verses for kids and grand children. I’m really enjoying working on this and reviewing all the various resources for it. Did you see the cute Ten Commandments song on Monday – it’s in the top right corner. Very fun for grandparents and their grandchildren, don’t you think? Fun for the grandkids to sing and act to, and fun for us to watch and clap. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s Bible verse, Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy, is the portion of Scripture I learned as a child, though for me it was taught as the third commandment at my Lutheran school. The rest of the passage from Exodus 20:9-12 is,ย “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day ; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.”

I love to remind my grandkids, as I did my kids before them, of other encouraging Bible verses that go well with this passage, like:

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”ย Hebrews 10:23-25

OR as the Message version of these inspiring and uplifting Bible verses puts it:

Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps His word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.ย 

As Jesus explained to His disciples:

Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. “So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.” Mark 2:27-28


No one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day – things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ. Colossians 2:16-18

Wonderful verses, aren’t they? There’s one more passage of encouraging Bible verses that I love to share with my grandkids as I remind them that EVERY day is to be given to God – such a great way to share “the surrendered life” with them:

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. ย 

I especially love how the Message puts the first sentence:

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering.ย 

How about you? Do you have other Bible verses you love to pair with this fourth commandment of the Ten Commandments? We’d love to hear.

In the meantime, it’s another great Word-Filled Wednesday at Internet Cafe Devotions, full of inspirational Bible verses for all of us in or out of the Sandwich Generation.

P.S. Speaking of the Bible and Bible verses, do your grandchildren or children have a good Children’s Bible? I encourage you to start them on this precious habit of reading the Bible regularly, from their own Bible. Amazon has several great choices you can find by clicking here. One that my grandkids especially love is the NIV Adventure Children Bible for ages 9-12. Or if you prefer the King James Version (some of my grandkids’ schools require them), they even have pink and blue children’s Study Bibles in KJV. ๐Ÿ™‚
