Bible Basket

Author:  Tricia HodgesWhen something is right in front of you it’s hard to ignore it. I’ve seen many different versions of a Bible basket shared around the internet lately and I was inspired. I gathered all our Bibles into one basket. I put the basket right in the center of the family room table.

The basket is simply a cheap one I picked up at Walmart in the back to school sale aisle. Yet it’s sturdy enough for every day use.

Now, all the Bibles the children have received from church are right there. The Child Training Bible is an easy reference. The Word is right in front of our eyes. The answer we are looking for is within reach – in plain sight. We have to move the basket to play a game. Matchbox cars race around it. All the family activities are centered around that basket of Bibles.

Plus, at busy bed time, Leading Little Ones to God is within reach. We don’t have to go hunting.

Jesus answered, “it is written: man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4

Take this idea and tailor it for you and your family. Teen devotionals, whatever helps you get into the Word. Put your basket right where you will all see it. Here are a few more versions of a Bible basket you might like as much as I did:

How do you keep The Word right in the center of your day?

She found out at the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short. Tricia writes about her daily dose of chaos at Hodgepodge.
