A Charlie Brown Memory Lesson
In the classic Christmas movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Linus is assigned a prominent role in the group's upcoming drama production. Charlie Brown contributes much-needed leadership to their efforts, but Linus is daunted by the thought of memorizing his lines.
After reviewing his part, Linus concludes emphatically, "I can't memorize something like this so quickly! Why should I be put through such agony? Give me one good reason why I should memorize this!"
As laughable as his reaction may seem, anyone who's been memorizing Scripture for long has probably asked the same questions. When a verse or chapter proves especially difficult to memorize, we may wonder with Linus, "Why should I be put through such agony?" Thankfully, we have much more than "one good reason" to memorize. (Click here to see a few of them). The benefits are countless!
Memorizing is tough, but it's something you'll never regret doing. So, in all the busyness of the holiday season, be sure and take time to immerse yourself in God's Word and hide some new portion of it in your heart. It's worth it!
