Verse 15: Hiding 20 in 2012 Scripture Memory Challenge

Forging strong friendships requires that you engage others and share your heart openly.  I am so thankful for the godly girlfriends God has placed in my life.  A true friend will encourage, challenge, and support you.  Do you have a friend like this?

In his book Scripture by Heart: Devotional Practices for Memorizing God’s Word, Joshua Choonmin Kang states that memorizing Scripture helps develop one skill required for fostering friendships: 

“Learning Scripture by heart

sharpens, seasons, and softens

our conversational skills” (p.83).

How about you?  Are you ready to effectively develop your conversational skills through Scripture memorization?  Let’s hold each other accountable by Hiding 20 in 2012.  In the comment section below, write out the verse you will be working on for the next two weeks. Make sure to include your first name, your home state, the verse’s address/location, and the Bible translation:

Lyli from Florida:

“In peace I will both lie down and sleep,

for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”

Here’s a little play on words for all you Pinterest Fans. Rather than ‘Pin it,” let’s purpose to “Hide it.” I will end each post with a “Hide it” Suggested Verse.

“Hide it”:

“A word fitly spoken is like

apples of gold in a setting of silver.”

Proverbs 25:11, NRSV
