A New York Times article linked the increase of computer storage with the decrease of data in the human mind. Our electronic aids now remember phone numbers, driving directions, and other information we used to learn by repeated use. In schools, memorization and oral recitation are disappearing from the curriculum. We have become, according to the Times, “products of a culture that does not enforce the development of memory skills.”
Scripture memory is more than a helpful mental exercise. The goal is to saturate our minds with God’s truth so that our lives will conform to His ways.
Let’s not forget to remember and follow the life-giving wisdom of God’s Word. – David McCasland
God’s Word will change your life,
If you will do your part
To read, to study, and obey,
And hide it in your heart. – Sper
Let the Bible fill your mind, rule your heart, and guide your life.
