It’s Sunday, so it’s time to share another of my free printable coloring pages. The Bible commands us to take every thought captive, and this week’s coloring page provides a beautiful reminder of that directive.
The thing I love about coloring Scripture verses is that you can meditate on the verse and hide it in your heart as you do. Here, Paul gives us a good reason to commit God’s Word to memory — so we’re ABLE to “take every thought captive.”
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5, NIV)
Sharpening Your Thinking Skills
To really cultivate clear thinking in our families, we need to (1) Know the Truth and (2) Recognize lies (fallacies) when we hear them. I know of no better way to know the truth than to study the Bible for yourself, to memorize it, and to meditate on it daily.
As for recognizing lies and faulty thinking, that’s really a by-product of being well-versed in the Truth. But I’d also recommend the following books for sharpening your powers of discernment. The first, The Fallacy Detective, is great for helping kids identify common fallacies and teaching them to think logically. The other two books, Lies Women Believe and Lies Men Believe (and the Truth that Sets Them Free) tackle wrong beliefs that even Christian adults sometimes buy into, sometimes without even realizing it.
