Things to teach a child.....Proverbs 22:6
Purchase a new Bible a year before your childs event—perhaps their 16th birthday or high school graduation. Then, take a year to read through it with a Bible reading plan making notations in the margin written specifically to your child. Make comments about the verse’s special significance. Mention how you’ve seen a truth of scripture lived out in their life. Warn them of pitfalls. Encourage them with favorite verses underlined. Then, on their big day, wrap it up and give it to them as a gift.
Phillippians 2:14-15 Jar - what a great idea. Put $5 in quarters in the jar each month. Every time they whine or complain you take a quarter out. (With siblings, you put it in the other siblings jar - makes the sting even worse!) At the end of the month they get to keep what is in the jar.
