Anyway, there are days in our study that I honestly think, "Are they really getting any of this?"
But yesterday was not one of those days.
The passage we read and discussed was Matthew 12:33-50, quoting specifically here vs.33-35:
"Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil."
In our discussion I asked them about what things did the Bible instruct us to do to lay up good treasure into our hearts versus evil treasure. They answered reading the Bible, memorizing Scripture, praying, listening to preaching, and so on. I told them that in Psalm 119, but I didn't remember the specific verse, that the psalmist said, "I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against You."
Chess said, "It's verse 11, Mom."
And he was right.
Thank you, Lord, for the encouragement of Your word becoming true jewels of treasure in my sons' hearts.
