Every January I put on my list of New Year Resolutions: memorize scripture. And every year I fail.
I always attempt it; don’t get me wrong. I’d start memorizing a verse or two from a passage that caught my eye. But then the index card would get lost. I’d find it some months later in the bottom of console of my car.
Oh, that’s where that went. I should get back to working on it, I’d muse, holding a crumpled and stained 3×5 card. But by then I’d forgotten what I’d already memorized. Frustrated and unmotivated, the thought of memorizing scripture would fade away.
And then I’d pull out those resolutions in January and be reminded again. Memorize scripture. Right.
