Beth Moore chose this verse last time and I have tried to memorize it in the past because I know my big mouth needs it! So I decided to go ahead and put it in my long-term memory this time. And hopefully I'll apply it to my life as well! :)
Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
keep watch over the door of my lips.
Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil,
to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers;
let me not eat of their delicacies.
Evan told me they learned this verse at Kidz Kamp a few weeks ago, and I thought it would be good for us to memorize it together. He's at a pretty sensitive age and gets upset sometimes when we won't let him do, say, or watch certain things because of the worldly messages they portray. Maybe by understanding this verse a little more, he'll see that he needs to be the Christian example for others to see instead of just blending in with the world.
1 Timothy 4:12
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.
