Who, Me — Memorize?

“I can’t memorize! I don’t have time.”

But all of us do memorize: names, song lyrics, directions, and more. As you read Scripture, a certain verse may pop out at you and you might think, “That hits me. I need to remember that.” See the tips below on ways to hide God’s Word in your heart (Psalm 119:11).

Write the verse and reference on a card. Tape it to your bathroom mirror.

Read it aloud multiple times, emphasizing different words each time.

Meditate on it. Don’t try to memorize it yet; just chew on it for a while.

Personalize it by putting it into your own words. Replace pronouns with your name, if appropriate.

Pray through it. Thank God for it and ask him to help you live out its truth.

Share it. Tell others what it means and how it is significant to you.

Review it daily until you know it word for word along with the reference.

What are some ways you’ve encouraged your teens to hide God’s Word in their hearts?
