One of the things I prayed about in terms of school for this coming year is our relationships with one another here at home.
It is paramount to us that the character of our children remains more important than any academic successes they might achieve.
With that in mind, I selected a theme verse for our school year.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
We will also be memorizing several verses from that chapter in addition to just our theme verse.
I'm going to introduce the year with it (a mini Bible study on the verse), and we'll continue to say it each day together and it will be posted for visibility.
I imagine we'll be referencing it quite a bit, too- in our day-to-day goings on, and talking about ways we can honor one another above ourselves and what that could look like, or what it does look like when we catch someone doing so and can commend them for it! I can't wait! :)
