Cartoon of a boy bragging to another, “I memorized the books of the Bible. Did you know they’re all bestsellers?”
I’ve heard some people say memorization has gone by the wayside since Google makes it easy to look up something. And I suppose anybody could look up all the books of the Bible on their mobile device and call it a day.
But there is something to be said about challenging your brain and memorizing some valuable information. Our brains need challenged and worked out like any muscle.
If you’re looking for a good book on Bible scripture memorization, I’d recommend one by a friend, and one of my editors, Tina Houser. She has a book entitled Hiding the Word in my Heart.
It’s good to exercise the muscle memory and to have some encouragement memorized in the process.
I drew this for the November, 2014 Church of God Newsletter.
