Want to send a Christian birthday card, or just share your faith with a scripture verse inside? If you’re looking to send a more meaningful birthday message, a touch of scripture may be just the thing to get the recipient thinking about not only their special day, but the truth that they are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
Several choices are available today for Christian birthday cards, ranging from bright and punchy colors to watercolor images. Others are more traditional, showing Catholic or Christian faith icons. You’ll also find a larger selection than ever of creative photos with Christian-based messages, perfect for buying a stack to have on-hand all through the year.
If you’ve already got a few cards or want to choose one with a more mainstream message, it only takes a minute to share a verse that communicates the value of the receiver in your life. Here are some scripture verses that are perfect for sharing inside a birthday card:
1. Choose a scripture to remind the birthday guy/girl that aside from gifts and parties, just being in a relationship with God is a pretty wonderful way to celebrate another year. King David says in Psalms: “The one thing I ask of the Lord – the thing I seek most – is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s
perfections and meditating in His Temple.” (Psalm 27:4)
2. Choose a card or write a note to help the receiver remember who holds life in His very hands, such as: “All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:16b)
3. Remind a loved one or friend that today, their birthday, is a great day to start anew. “But exhort and encourage one another daily, while it is called Today” (Hebrews 3:13).
4. Send a scripture that looks ahead to a bright new future. Proverbs 16:3 reminds us “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” You could pair a card like this with an item like a decorative Christian wall plaque to send a truly meaningful gift.
