So if you know me, you probably know that we are not a tattoo kind of family. I would say this was an intentional choice, but not one that causes us to really judge others who opt for tattoos, it just is not really “our” thing.
But I love the idea of looking at my wrist, or my ankle and being reminded of something that is important to me. I love thinking about having a word that constantly reminds me of Who I am, or Whose I am, right there on mat wrist to see.
So, when Armed with Truth offered a sample of their temporary tattoos I signed up!!
I was offered a pack of “Christ like” verses and a kit that had Abide in it. I love to think of abiding in the truth, in God, in his promises.
So here is my wrist with my Abide:
And my son applied one of the verse ones:
These are pretty fun to have on, to help you remember or even memorize a verse.
Mine lasted about 3 days on my wrist – but it is an area that gets wet a lot. Jacob’s lasted about 4 or 5 days on his arm. They are made in the USA and non-toxic and safe!
We both thought they were very clear and very good quality. We enjoyed trying them out. Here is a description of the pack that Jacob’s verse came out of:
- John 13:34-35 – Love Others
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
- Philippians 2:3-4 – Consider Others
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
- Matthew 5:16 – Be A Light
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
- 2 Corinthians 4:5 – Serve Others
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
- Proverbs 19:17 – Be Generous
Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.
- 1 John 3:18 – Love With Action
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
- 1 Peter 5:6 – Be Humble
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
- Luke 16:10 – Steward Well
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”
- Matthew 6:24 – Serve Only One
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
- James 4:17 – Be Obedient
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
All of our packs come with 10 different tattoos containing scripture based around a certain topic. Each tattoo will continue to look classy for about 3 days before you should scrub it off and apply the next one. By the end of the month you will have 10 new truths memorized.
