About Scripture memorization....

Hey it's Don and Dawn here again.
There was once a restaurant that had a very peculiar promotion for their “All you can eat” buffet. 

If you can eat in 30 minutes or less, you get a 50% discount on the final tab. 

People rushed to the restaurant hoping to avail of such a treat. 

You can see the place packed with people who rushed towards the food line, dumped the food on their plats, and ate like it was a marathon.
Most people finished eating in less than 30 minutes and only paid half the price. 

A TV reported interview one of the patrons after he ate. He said that, as much as he paid half the price, he did not enjoy his meal because he was in a hurry.
He just stuffed everything in his mouth. He was too conscious of the clock rather than tasting the goodness of every bite. 

Sometimes, that is how we treat reading the Bible. 

We open up the book hoping to find an inspirational verse or two. Then, we’re off to our first appointment. We just read for the sake of reading. But did we enjoy it? No we didn’t. 

Speed reading will not work with God’s Word. When reading the Bible, you need to take it slow. Take time to ponder what the verse is about. Memorize a verse and meditate it. Some even write in a journal. 

All these cannot be rushed. If we seek God truthfully, then we need to honor Him with time. 

David captures this thought in Psalm 63:1 (New International Version) - “You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” 

God offers an “All You Can Eat” buffet in the Bible. To truly enjoy it, you must take it slow, take pleasure in every bite, and leave satisfied. 

Lastly, take God’s word with you by memorizing it. 

Scripture memorization is a fun, fulfilling, and faith-building habit you can develop. 

That’s why we’re encouraging to check out the resource we develop to help you memorize God’s word regardless of your age or situation.

P.S. Scripture memorization is a common habit by spirit filled Christians. 

So don't let the enemy stop you and begin your journey today and…
