Maddie (age 5 - for a few more days anyhow) and 1 Corinthians 13

1 Corinthians 13
New King James Version (NKJV)

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


  1. Its so wonderful to see children being raised with the Word of God. There is so little truth left in this world of ours...

  2. A great passage for young ones (and everyone) to memorize.

  3. Out of the mouths of babes....well done, Maddie!
    Hope you have a Happy Birthday too!

  4. Well done! I posted a comment on the post you had with your son's memory verse but it didn't seem to work. Basically I was asking what the book with the CD was that you use as I'd love to use something similar with my younger boys. Our 5 year old struggles with his memory work and something like that would really help him, I think!

  5. Wow! She did sooooo well. Did you share what you guys are using to memorize your scriptures ? I need something to motivate and help us. [o=

    Blessings and ((HUGS))
