  • The Importance of Review

    "The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting, but diligence is
    man’s precious possession."
    (Proverbs 12:27)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    For me, one of the most exciting parts of Scripture memorization has always been the sense of accomplishment I feel after reciting a new chapter or set of verses for the first time. There's something special about knowing days or even weeks of hard work have finally paid off, which seems to be very much in line with Solomon's observation as recorded in Ecclesiastes 5:18,

    "Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one...to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage."

    Our mission at Scripture Memory Fellowship is a very simple one: to provide tools and encouragement that will help you and your family successfully memorize Scripture. We’ve spent the last 70 years developing our own set of resources, but we never hesitate to recommend any other helps that may be able to streamline the process of hiding God's Word in your own heart. Although a number of those resources are featured in the Online Tools section of this site, I’d like to highlight just five reasons why memverse.com not only made that list, but is highly recommended by our staff at conferences and expos across at the country.

  • Setting Goals

    "The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty."
    (Proverbs 21:5)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    Success never happens by accident. Whether you're developing a career, studying for a test, or simply accomplishing chores around the house, positive results depend entirely on hard work and diligent planning. As Jesus described in Matthew 7:14, "narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Those who hope to avoid failure must be intentional about pursuing success, and this applies just as much to Scripture memorization as any other aspect of our lives.

    Even in my own life, I have to admit that I often face the temptation to approach memorization casually. Although I'm absolutely convinced that hiding God's Word in one's heart is a necessary part of the Christian life, I sometimes catch myself mindlessly reciting a passage during my daily review session rather than truly “applying my heart to understanding.” (Prov. 2:2) Continue reading

  • Is Scripture Memorization Really Necessary?

    "Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction."
    (Psalm 119:92)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    As I have shared my passion for Scripture memorization with others over the years, the most common question I seem to be confronted with is whether or not memory work is really necessary or worthwhile. After all, the Word of God can be more easily accessed than ever before in today’s technological era, both in printed form and electronically. Although most people don’t actually verbalize their doubts about the necessity of memorization, you can usually tell when those doubts are in the back of someone’s mind by their apparent apprehension to commit to memorizing themselves. And who could blame them? Memory work is a mental exercise that requires both time and dedication, and wanting to make sure the rewards are worth the sacrifices is certainly understandable.

  • Without Distraction

    "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven."
    (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    Most of us live incredibly fast-paced lives. From the moment our morning alarm goes off, we begin the task of accomplishing as much as we can in the shortest time possible. Even with the help of modern conveniences like smartphones, interstates and fast-food restaurants, we often find ourselves rushing through every aspect of the day only to lie down at night and realize that tomorrow's to-do list is just as daunting. Of course I don't think it would be appropriate to condemn productivity, but there are some things you simply cannot hurry through, and Scripture memorization is near the very top of the list.

    According to Solomon in today's Scripture, there is an appropriate time for "every purpose under heaven." You may be able to multitask effectively when talking on the phone or cooking a meal, but the "purpose" of memorizing Scripture requires our exclusive attention. Continue reading

  • Making Time to Memorize Scripture

    “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
    (Ephesians 5:15-16)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    Aside from the common tendency of people to underestimate their own ability to memorize, I think one of the primary reasons many people shy away from committing to systematic Scripture memorization is a general lack of free time in their already busy lives. Even in my own life, I can relate to the struggle of finding time to spend in silent prayer – let alone Scripture memorization – after a long day at the office has left me tired, with even more to accomplish once I get home.

    But no matter how busy we all seem to stay, it’s been my observation that we always make time for what’s most important to us. Continue reading

  • Why I Started Memorizing Scripture

    "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
    (Hebrews 4:12)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    As someone who was blessed to grow up under the influence of a Christian mother and attend church throughout most of my childhood, I have been familiar with verses like this one for about as long as I can remember. And although I've always believed that the Bible is God's Word, I didn't really commit my life to Christ for good until I was 14. Most of my life prior to this was spent in a back-and-forth relationship with God, where I would seemingly be on fire with zeal for a month or two, then become lukewarm or even cold for about as long before starting the cycle over again. A number of things changed in my life during the summer and fall of 2007, however, that made me realize my need for a very personal relationship with my heavenly Father – something I soon learned was impossible apart from His Word.

    I understood what the Bible itself said about Scripture memorization, but I had never given much serious thought to whether or not it would be worth doing on a consistent basis myself. Continue reading

  • Always Ready

    “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”
    (1 Peter 3:15)
    Article by Dakota Dakota Lynch

    One of the greatest responsibilities we have as Christians is to share the Gospel with those who need to hear the message of salvation. Not only is this something God commands us to do through Scripture, but it's also one of the greatest honors He grants His children. Think about it. He could have easily entrusted this task to a heavenly host of angels that would probably preach more eloquently and effectively than we do, but instead He chose us, members of the fallen race He died to save, to be bearers of the greatest news ever published.

    We can see from this Scripture that Peter took this responsibility extremely seriously. It was his desire and exhortation to be ever-ready to defend our faith in Christ, knowing that the best chances to witness are rarely convenient ones for the Christian. Continue reading
