Right now our Sunday School is studying "Answers in Genesis". Last Sunday we embarked on the first lesson of book #2. Each book has 10 lessons and every book has two Bible verses which they'd like class participants to learn. So we have five weeks! The curriculum is designed for the entire Sunday School from nursery, various school levels, through adults.
I worked really hard to memorize the first two Bible verses in the verse book of the curriculum. So did the younger students---they set theirs to a song they had learned. They will probably remember what they have learned for the next sixty years. While I did learn mine, don't ask me to remember three weeks from now.......
Here is our Bible verse for the next month plus (think you can learn it?):
"When I look at your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set into place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and son of man that you care for him?"
~ Psalm 8:3 - 4
Bible Commentary: "When we look at the marvels of creation, we wonder how God could be concerned for people who constantly disappoint him. Yet God created us only a little lower than himself. The next time we question our worth, as a person or feel down about ourselves, we need to remember that God considers us to be highly valuable. We have great worth because we bear the stamp of the Creator. Because God has already declared how valuable we are to him, we can be set free from feelings of worthlessness.
"To respect God's majesty, we must see ourselves in the light of greatness. When we look at creation, we often feel small by comparison. Humility means proper respect for God, not self-depreciation."
