Just the type of quote I am looking for.
Any more?

'I have called you by name, you are mine' Isaiah 43.9 (I think - particularly good if your ds has been baptised.)

"AS for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord" ?

These are great. Keep em coming.

Ds has not been baptised as I am Catholic, and DH is Jewish. We are trying to give DS a well rounded religous education.

The quote from Isaiah is equally appropriate from both a Jewish and Catholic point of view.

"Sons are a heritage from the Lord,children a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth."

Psalm 127:3-4

Jeremiah 3V33 ( I think)

Call to me and I will answer, I will tell you great and marvellous things, of which you know nothing about.

It's a long time since bible class but I always liked that one, left you quite inquisitive.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (again, hopefully acceptable for both Jew/Catholic):

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Or the blessing: Numbers 4: 24-26

"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
