Recite Romans R2 Starts Soon

When my daughter was in K5, her entire class recited the second chapter of Matthew. It wowed me!

Because my new BFF, Beth Moore suggested I could memorize James, my walking partner and I took her up on it. It took us almost 5 months, but it was worth it. I have a treasury of Scriptural knowledge in my head–along with old phone numbers and locker combinations–that will last for eternity.

Why do I say that? The Bible says it, that’s why. “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.” Is. 40:8 Memorizing God’s Word is an investment in eternity.

So I’m throwing down the Bible gauntlet. If a 50+ woman can memorize James, maybe we can all memorize Romans.

I’m scared. What if I can’t do it? What if I give up? What if I start in on Romans, and locker combinations come pouring out?

Why am I going to try? Because it’s worth it. I love football, but I can’t remember who won the Super Bowl last year. I’m almost addicted to NCIS, but if a friend has a problem, Gibbs can’t help me with an answer.

Romans contains answers to all life’s questions. Why am I here? How did I get here? Is there a God? Does He care about me? How should I live?

That’s better than sports or TV or old phone numbers.

Will you join me?
