I came across this verse online while looking up some different verses on Biblegateway.com It's so neat to look up the different translations. I love finding the easiest one for me to understand and teach to my chickies!
I thought it was a good one!
This is wholeheartedly what I desire for my children.
Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.
New Living Translation (NLT)
