Every year, no matter how old my children get, I take a sharpie and write a bible verse on the inside of their lunch box. I prayerfully choose a verse that they will be able to read each day, with the goal of having it memorized by the end of the year.

For the younger ones, I keep it simple so that they can read it on their level. For the older ones, I choose something to help them remain focused and inspired throughout the year. It’s a subtle way to help them memorize scripture and to teach them to center their entire day on God.

Here are 5 Bible verses you can write on your child’s lunch box this year!

  1. PreKindergaten – 1st Grade

2. 2nd Grade – 4th Grade

3. Middle School

4. Junior High

5. High School

Our prayers are with you and your family as you begin a new school year!
