Recently, while sorting through some old papers, Teri discovered what we called “nickel sheets.” We used the concept to help a child, old enough to read, develop the daily habit of time in the Word. They would read a passage, usually a chapter, then write down a portion of the passage and a brief application for it in their life.
It provided a degree of accountability that they were reading during that time. The goal was to encourage reading Scripture with an understanding of application to their lives. Reading the Bible with that purpose in mind is a valuable lifetime benefit we desire our family to have.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to
be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
