Good idea... But that's why I said five verses, you can do it!
Hey, why not memorize Psalms 23? It's six verses, but still...
"Try two verses a week."
"Memorize Psalm 23... it's six verses."
Just playing. Sure... it's plenty possible to jump into five verses of memorization a week, but many of us haven't been working on memorizing any. Smaller, bite sized chunks at first... I think that'll get more people involved.
So... I dunno about everyone else... but I'ma do this: Memorize Psalm 23 by the end of the year.
Cool thing about Psalm 23 (beyond it's rather common familiarity) is that it flows in a way that makes memorization easier.
What say you, Garth? Wanna try your hand at a systematic approach to Scripture memorization that tackles 2-3 verses a week and revolves around a central theme for a bit of next year?
