Scripture Memorization and Napoleon Dynamite

This week during our missions trip we are memorizing one verse a day. Something that I’ve noticed is that most people convince themselves that they can’t memorize. I am fully convinced that memorizing Scripture has more to do with hard work than whether or not you’re good at memorizing. Maybe it takes you forever. That is OK. There is nothing, nothing more worthy of your careful thought and meditation.

Next time you are quoting Napoleon Dynamite with your friends, stop and realize what a great memorizer you really are. You just had to watch the movie 80 times and concentrate on the randomness. The same goes with Scripture (other than the randomness). Spend time with it. Quote it during the day.

It will change your life.

“Don’t you know, I’ve been memorizing Scripture like all week?” (read in the voice of Kip).
