When our children were small, this verse was one that I included in their memorization. It was a great one for me to think on too. So, I printed it out in a lovely font, and I framed it. There is a copy in our hallway, and one in our dining room.
These two places seemed appropriate. School work was done in the dining room, and of course our meals took place there. Any bickering was usually stopped with a finger-point to the verse and a recitation of it by any child, or all. The copy in the hallway is passed by me at the beginning and end of each day, and I always need reminding of it.
Ephesians 4:31-32 King James Version (KJV)
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
I think our nation needs reminding of this as well. Insults are being flung, minds are focusing on items that are of little or no value. We’ve already been forgiven. Let’s extend that to others.
