I?m so proud of 3 of our high school students! We?ve been meeting together on a somewhat weekly basis for over a year now. During our meetings we talk about God and life, discuss a chapter of a book, and do some scripture memory. These guys have made a commitment to prioritize their personal spiritual growth.
Recently we had our semester memory verse review. The guys were responsible to memorize 12 verses. As the judge, I was brutal. I wanted word for word accuracy. We did the review and they were a little off, a few words here and there…not good enough. I laid an incentive on the table and challenged them to get each verse perfect the next week (this week). All 3 boys came prepared. They nailed – all 12 verses word for word! Here?s a list of the verses they memorized (It?s from a series put out by Navpress)
?I Peter 3:18
?I John 5:13
I find verse memory to be a very helpful spiritual discipline. What?s your experience with it? Any tips, or resources you want to share?
