I have never been a fan of tattoos. When I see them plastered on someone's arm, I think, how ugly, or how painful that must be. I also remember that somewhere in the Old Testament God warned that we must not make marks on our skin. However, when the opportunity came for me to review the Armed With Truth tattoos, I thought, what a wonderful idea. What better way to have scripture imprinted on your body in a place where you can see it everyday and memorize it.
Then I recalled another verse of scripture that says, "And you shall love the Lord your
God with all your heart, with all your
soul, and with all your might. Take to heart these instructions with
which I charge you this day.
Impress them upon your children. Recite
them when you stay at home and when you are away, when you lie down
and when you get up. Bind them as a
sign on your hand and let them serve
as a frontlet between your eyes" (Deuteronomy 6:5-8).
We may not take these words literally as the Jews did, but God wants us to "meditate [on His word] day and night" Psalm 1: 2 to remind us of his goodness to us, and these Armed With Truth tattoos certainly help us do that. They are by no means ugly, are quick and easy to apply, non-toxic, and in my case, lasted a good four days.
I chose the Fearless package which contains ten temporary scripture tattoos with application instructions. Here you see Be Steadfast from Isaiah 26: 3 - You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
I was surprised at the interest my grand children showed in these tattoos.
here's my granddaughter sporting 1 John 4: 4 - God is
greater than anything.
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome
them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in
And here's the most recent one I took: Focus on the Unseen
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is seen is eternal. - 2 Corinthians 4: 18
These tattoos not only help you memorize scripture, but they can be a great way of sharing the word of God with others. Like the nurse in the doctor's office who looked at mine and said, "That's cool."
