Printable Scripture Table Tents

Deuteronomy 11:18-19 says, "Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 19 You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."

Do you find that it can be hard to live out this verse?  I sure do!  My house is full of Scripture.  I have it everywhere including my bathrooms.  From where I am sitting I can see 7 different Scripture decor pieces in my house.  Sometimes if I am not careful I can pass by these verses not even giving notice to them.   There are times that I may need to bind them to my hands as Deuteronomy says so I can see them. :)  I love the importance this verse places on God's Word.  His Word is so important that they should be bound to our hands, but even more importantly laid up in our hearts and souls. 

It takes effort though doesn't it?  If we don't make the effort to teach it to our children then someone else will teach them something we might not want them learning.  That is a scary thought. 

Even though there are days when I pass by the Scripture all around our house and don't take notice there are just as many days when those Scriptures come alive.  God's Word is living and active!  I love to have Scripture everywhere, but one of my favorite places is at the table.  I love sitting down for a meal listening to the kids quote the verses that I have placed on the table. 

I wanted to share with you some Scripture table tents.  I made these for our Ladies Bible Study group that meets tomorrow morning, but I will also be using these to decorate our table for Valentine's.  I hope to share pictures with you sometime this week. 

Each 8.5x11 page will print two table tents.  Cut each sheet in two and fold in half to make a table tent.  I have created two different designs that you can print below.  I hope you enjoy these!!
