The Bible has a lot to say about love.
John 13:34-35 tells us that we’re commanded to love others as Christ loved us. Not only that, but others will know us as disciples of Jesus by our love for each other.
On Valentine’s Day, as we celebrate love, let’s teach our children that love isn’t always something mushy and romantic.
Love is something we’re commanded to do by the King of the Universe, who first loved us. Love is walking according to God’s commands. And love covers a multitude of sins.
Our kids can learn about what the Bible says about love in a fun way!
Love Scripture Bookmarks in ESV and KJV
Print out these 5 cute bookmarks with love Scriptures in either the ESV or KJV, according to your preference. The backs of the bookmarks have adorable air mail / animal designs with hearts scattered here and there, with an emphasis on the color blue. (I’ve got your back, boys.)
You can use these bookmarks as Valentines, or just print a set for each of your kids and cut them out. I like to give my kids each a book on special holidays, so I’ll give them each a set with a fun book to read. These bookmarks are a fun way to keep Scripture in front of your kids and to encourage them to memorize it as well.
How to Print Love Scripture Bookmarks
- Sometimes readers are concerned about using colored ink. If this is the case for you, there should be a setting on your printer that allows you to print in black and white. Printing in grayscale will still use some color, but it will come out prettier than black and white.
- Print these cards on duplex (back-to-back or double-sided). You’ll want to flip on the SHORT edge for these. You should be able to change the settings for this in the Properties tab of your printer box once you download and tell your computer to print.
- I recommend printing on white cardstock so the bookmarks will be more durable and the back won’t show through on the front. This is my very favorite cardstock: Neenah Premium Cardstock.
- Cut the bookmarks apart.
- Consider laminating them so they will last longer.
