Give Me Five Friday- {Brandon's Bible Verses}

For the past three weeks, I have been subbing at a Christian school for a teacher on maternity leave. Brandon has been able to go to kindergarten while I teach. While in kindergarten, B has been learning some Bible verses. The other night he decided to recite some for us. I knew the first few, but after that I think he started improvising. Here are a few of the verses he said.
{Brandon's Bible Verses}

1. Keep thy tongue from evvvvviiiiiil. Matthew 19:19 (He really stresses the evil when he says it.)

2. Don't get on the train tracks, because you could get hurt. Matthew 19:19

3. Don't stick your tongue out at evil. Matthew 19:19 (I think this is what he think, "Keep your tongue from evil," means.)

4. Thou shalt not commit "redultery." (When he said this one, Shad and I had to have him say it again.)

5. Don't turn where the sign says turn left because you could hit the sign that says turn left. Matthew 19:19 (He "quoted" all these verses while we were driving.)

If you notice he gave every verse the reference of Matthew 19:19. I think he thinks if it has a reference, it's a verse. I know it's probably not a good idea for him to make up Bible verses, but we had one interesting car ride. I think it came out of Shad asking him, "Now what does that mean?" on the first verse, and Brandon took it from there. I looked up his favorite reference Matthew 19:19 and it's about honoring your father and mother and loving your neighbor. Good choice Brandon.


  1. so cute! :)

  2. Sounds like he improved on the Bible.

  3. This is so great! My little one is 3 and I am trying to decide when to start. I guess it's never too early.
