Our Display Book

Our family is learning Proverbs 4:23. My friend Jen writes at Jen’s New Song and has decided to make scripture memorization a focus for her family this year and will be sharing her KJV printables on her blog as she makes them for her family.  That’s a bonus for me.

We have a display book on our table that has all of the things that we want to go through as a family. It contains pages with our school song, character qualities we’re reviewing, the books of the bible that we recite a few times a week {NT only right now} and the verse we would like to work on. I love this because I print out the things that are important and slide them into the clear pockets. It’s easy to flip through; it’s visible and accessible so that I don’t forget!

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

                                                                                     ~ Proverbs 4:23

That little verse is full of action, of commitment…and of vital importance. As a mother, I need to keep my heart diligently but I also have a responsibility to keep my children’s hearts while they are little too.

Keep

  1. To retain possession of.

    kept the change; must keep your composure.

  2. To have as a supply.

    keep spare parts in case of emergency.

  3. To provide (a family, for example) with maintenance and support.

Diligence

  1. careful and persistent work or effort.

    synonyms:
    conscientiousness, assiduousness, assiduity, hard work, application, concentration, effort, care, industriousness, rigor, meticulousness, thoroughness;

{thanks Google}

This week I am turning over in my mind how I can be more purposeful, more diligent, in keeping hearts.  How about you?
