Wednesday nights lately have been some of my favorite nights. It’s when my wife works late and my oldest daughter is at dance. That leaves my youngest and I with a couple hours together.
Tonight, as I sat her black bean quesadilla down on the table she said, “Are you blogging about a Bible verse tonight?”
I told her I was and asked if she had any suggestions. “Hold on,” she said leaving the table. She return a few seconds later with her pink Girls Life Application Study Bible. “Let’s find one together!”
So instead of sitting across from each other we sat side-by-side with her Bible between us eating supper, reading, and talking about verses. We bookmarked a few eventually ending up in Proverbs.
There were several verses there that made her laugh. “How about this one,” she giggled and began to read Proverbs 14:7 out loud.
“Stay away from fools, for you won’t find knowledge on their lips.”
“Does that mean you should stay away from silly boys?” I asked.
“I think so,” she said and smiled. “Use that one tonight!”
I think she appreciated the simplicity of the verse. Even a 10 year can recognize a foolishness and know you won’t learn much from a fool.
So, there you have it. That’s how, together, we came up with this week’s Bible verse. It was a fun time and we both left the table saying we should do it again next week.
