Summary

Sometimes it feels like we can’t finish a thought before a child needs us to grab more water, tie a shoe, or change a diaper. When mom’s brain power is consistently going to urgent things, adding scripture memory into the routine can seem too hard. Who really has time for flashcards? In this episode, Emily and Laura show how memorizing scripture gives us the wisdom we’re craving for the everyday. God’s word renews our minds and transform our lives, which helps us in the carpool line, the kitchen, and every moment of motherhood. God gave us his word as a gift; let’s enjoy it.    VIEW TRANSCRIPT     GIVE TO RISEN MOTHERHOOD MENTIONED ON THE SHOW: Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Christian Belief, John M.

Do you currently memorize scripture? Have you ever had a rhythm for scripture memory? What are 2-3 reasons why you don’t memorize scripture (ie. uninterested, too tired, overwhelmed—and seriously no need to get stuck in guilt here. This is just a starting point!)? We believe the Bible is in the infallible Word of God, and it holds the power to judge the intentions of our hearts and renew our minds. Why is it important for Christians to know what the Bible says? Look up Psalm 119. List some of the benefits of knowing God’s word. Do you think you can experience these gifts apart from knowing God’s word and how he desires for us to live? We mentioned a lot of helpful tips and resources to start Bible memory in your home. Choose one or two that sound like a good fit for your learning style and family rhythm. How can you incorporate them into your week? How can you include your kids in the fun? Remember, we don’t earn our right standing before God by reciting Bible verses. He doesn’t love, bless, or help us more because we’ve proven ourselves worthy. Instead, he gifts us his word so we can better know him and how to live in a way that leads to joy. Consider an area in your life where you struggle to remember God’s love for you. What verses can you memorize to help you trust in God’s faithfulness to you? FOR MORE: To subscribe: on iOS, go to our iTunes page and subscribe.
