5 Bible Verses Toddlers Can Memorize - Intentional By Grace

Genesis 1:1: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

We chose Genesis 1:1 as our son’s first Bible verse to memorize.

Creation reveals its Creator, which make it important to know. Unless we believe God created us, the rest will make zero sense.

John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Creation pales in comparison to the person and work of Jesus Christ!

God created us and He loves us. John 3:16 is a truth-packed verse that is easy for little ones to memorize.

They should know from a young age that God loves them so much that He sent His Son to die on the Cross for them.

Ephesians 6:1: Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right.

During the early years of life, it’s important to understand that God has given Mommy and Daddy authority over their little ones. Ephesians 6:1 is often quoted throughout the day as a reminder that it is God who wants children to obey for it is right.

Matthew 22:39: And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

We memorize this verse to help us understand sharing with others! It is important to us that our children understand early on that loving others is an important part of being a Christian.

Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Often throughout the day, children require correction for wrong behavior. As parents, it’s easy to correct the behavior without telling them what God’s way looks like.
