Head and Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

Updated on March 18, 2012


Many devices are used to memorize scripture, including acronyms and pure recitation. Using this well-known children's song, one could be reminded of some of the more important scriptures that God has given in order for us to better know Him, His plan for living, and to be encouraged.

Head

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."~Philippians 4:8

This is commanding how we should think. Even our thoughts should be surrendered to Christ and should glorify him. It is one type of worship; to focus on the positive, to focus on God and His blessings, and to avoid thinking selfish and sinful thoughts.

Shoulders

"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”~Matthew 11:29-30

We should give our problems over to God. We don't have to deal with obstacles alone. We can hand them over to the Lord. He is able to do anything, even those things that seem impossible.

Knees


"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.'"~Matthew 6:5-13

We should pray not to be heard, but with honesty and we should remember that we are communicating with God. This should be done in reverence, with thanksgiving, and we should ask Him to meet our needs. We should also ask forgiveness and for strength to overcome temptation just as Jesus did.

Toes

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'"~Isaiah 52:7

Wherever we go, we should be prepared to share Christ. By living an example and taking the opportunities to witness, we show that we are His disciples.
