When children memorize beautiful words, it’s a gift that lasts a lifetime. As they grow up, they can call upon these words from their memory for comfort and strength. That’s one reason I have my children memorize poems and other beautiful writings as part of their homeschool work.
It’s even more meaningful when these words have for their source the Divine Author of Sacred Scripture. These Bible verses help us hear God speaking to us in the ordinary events of our lives.
Whether you’re a parent, teacher, grandparent, or religious education teacher, here are some Bible verses you can teach to the kids in your care. They’re short enough to memorize easily, but still incredibly meaningful and encouraging!

“They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’ wings; They will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
“Fear of others becomes a snare, but the one who trusts in the Lord is safe.” (Proverbs 29:25)
“I command you: be strong and steadfast! Do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord, your God, is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
