Why Memorizing Scripture?
- Keep us from sinning – I have hidden your word in my heart so that I might not sin against you” Psalm 119:
- Jesus did – Jesus quoted Old Testament Scripture over 180 times
- Keep God’s Commands on our hearts and lips “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
- Fight Temptation – The Bible is the sword in the armor of God and we are told to put on the armor of God so we can fight temptation. “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand…..and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:13, 17b Jesus used the sword of the Word as well in Matthew 4:1-11.
- Renew our Mind – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 2:2
- Meditate on it Day and Night – “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Joshua 1:8
- Respond to Why you Believe – “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” 1 Peter 3:15

How to Memorize Scripture
The key to memorizing anything is repetition! On top of that, you will remember better the you do of these: see, hear, say, and write.
I suggest picking a new verse or passage each week from these free printable bible memory verse cards.
- Read the verse out loud or in your head a couple times a day
- Say the printable bible verse cardsout loud a couple times a day (maybe as a family at breakfast and dinner)
- Write the verse down (you can mail it to a friend or Grandma)
- Drawing pictures on your verse cards can help visual learners
- Making verses into songs makes memorizing verses easy
I also suggest reviewing previously memorized free printable scripture cards periodically as well. Perhaps a different memory verse every day.
In no time your kids will have the power of the sword of the spirit ready to quickly help them throughout their daily life.
