I'm trying to put together about 40 scriptures - to teach my kids (about 1/week, beside vacation times).

Maybe you all could help me list some good, basic scriptures that would help instill healthy values.

I'll start:

1. "God is love." -1John 4:8
2. "Love one another." -John 13:34
3. "Be still and know that I am God." -Psalm 46:10
4. "Charity never faileth." -1 Cor 13:8
5. "Pray most earnestly." -1Thes 3:10
6. "Who will stand for truth?" -Psalm 119:160

7. "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man." -Psalm 118:8
8. "Men are that they might have joy." -2Nephi 2:27
9. "Love thy neighbor as thyself." -Matt 22:39
10. "Perfect love casteth out fear." -1John 4:18
11. "The kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:20
12. "The Lord looketh on the heart." 1Samuel 16:7

Any more?

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

Ephesians 2:8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die

Matthew 1:23
“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” —which means, “God with us.”

Maybe that just goes to show that there are a few things you have yet to become aware of. So do you object to the sentiment of the scripture, or just to the fact that it exists?

Thanks for pointing that out . This is the full version of that ....
"Adam fell that men might be: and men are, that they might have joy."
Tell the students that the fall into sin was not something that Adam could have joy about.
There is no joy in being declared guilty of every destestable action a person can do.
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. James 2:10

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;Isaiah 64:6

Tell the students that God revealed that the fall by Adam made any righteous acts like "filthy rages", which is the equivalent today as what we would refer to as a heavily used tampon
