I’ve always loved the idea of scripture memory and am convinced that it’s a life changing and hugely valuable thing to do. But did I do it? Sometimes. Sporadically. Every now and then. That was until I started a bible study on James. We were challenged to memorise the entire book of James. Not just the odd verse, not our favourite “treasure” from the text, the ENTIRE BOOK.
Memverse keeps track of all your Bible memory verses, gives you prompts to memorise them and will show you how you are progressing. It’s so clever; you start with a few verses in whichever translation you like and then it recommends that you add new memory verses at the appropriate time. It’s all online so there is no software to download, there are no flash cards to carry around, and, best of all, it’s free!
When I’ve not been sure what to do, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” has come into my mind. (James 1:5)
When I’ve been feeling judgemental towards people, “Mercy triumphs over judgment” (James 2:13)
When I’ve been tempted to watch things that aren’t helpful, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)
