Choosing a Bible verse

Consider the unique character of your child

Q: My son is graduating from high school and I'd like to "give" him a special Bible verse to mark the occasion. What are some ideas?

A: One starting point is to think about the unique character of your child.

If your son is an athlete, a dancer or a singer, the Bible contains many verses that include references to those activities.

designpicsFor further inspiration, borrow a Bible from your church or library that includes a concordance, an alphabetized list of words found in the Scriptures.

A verse of blessing, such Numbers 6:24-26, is also a fitting choice as your son prepares to begin the next chapter of his young life.
