Hello to you on this Martin Luther King day! We all take a moment today and remember the great work that this man did for freedom and for civil rights! Thank you Dr. King.
The multicultural church that I attend honors Dr. King on this weekend each year with a moving processional where congregants from different nations carry the flag of their country. It’s a beautiful picture of what I believe heaven is like…’every tribe and nation’!
OK, friend’s, it’s the middle of the month, and time for anyone who is joining me in bi-monthly scripture memory to work on another verse! Would love to know if you are joining me in this venture or if you have a memory system to share.
I have been memorizing out of the book of James this year and have a couple verses for today. These verses are a call to action which is in perfect harmony with the call of Dr. Martin Luther King.
‘But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do… 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 1:25, 27 NIV
Capture a segment for yourself, I promise it’ll mean more than ever if you meditate on it… and even more if you sear it into your memory – and as an added benefit, memorization is good for the brain.
I post my memory verses by my exercise machine and in my bathroom… on my iPhone and iPad. Some people create cards and use lamination. Please share your ideas!
I’ll be asking God to help us with our verses…and we will have another memory challenge at the beginning of February.
Live large, love lavishly and join me in memorizing! Madge
