My children and I like to put scripture verses to random tunes that we come up with. For years we have recorded these treasured made-up tunes onto a cassette tape. Recently, a friend and I were laughing together at my ancient technology, and she suggested we video our singing. So we did.
“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips.” Proverbs 27: 1-2
We thought it fun to put similar words to the tune of a familiar song from the musical Annie. “Tomorrow, Tomorrow, don’t boast about tomorrow.. for we know not what a day may bring..Let another man praise you and not your own lips.”
On one particular home school day, I was watching a friend’s children while she was caring for her mother out of town. I was also homeschooling my nephew, and this whole process was new to them. We had a good time, but none of us expected this to be shown anywhere–or we would have performed better. Here we are sharing it with you just to be real and encourage you to invest time and scripture into your children’s lives.
Friday I’ll be back to share how to explain this scripture to children.
