My daughter and I were watching a basketball game last week. I can’t remember what happened, but it caused her to reel off a few lines from the movie “Billy Madison.” She and her brother often quote lines from movies. From time-to-time, I’ve noticed people doing the same thing on Facebook. How do they remember all of that? Of course, they’re much younger, but still?
I’ve been thinking lately that I should try harder to commit more scripture to memory. As Pastor Bill said a week or so ago in a sermon – “Just get it up there (pointing to his brain) and eventually it will work its way to here (pointing to his heart).
But I’m thinking at this stage of the game, the most I might remember is the verse “Jesus wept!” That commercial, “I want my brain back!” definitely applies to me! All that I have in my memory bank are the verses, etc. I learned as a youth.
This can be your challenge for this week – to commit one or two verses to memory. Maybe even leave a comment today sharing with the rest of us the verses you intend to memorize. Then on Friday post whether or not you have been successful.
