It’s funny … the things we remember, isn’t it? The older we get the more excuses we use as to why there was a memory lapse. People accept our apologies and look on the deficiency comically. My question is if age has to do with forgetting, why does it happen to people no matter their stage in life?
A few years back (okay stay focused, this is about memory) when I began teaching, some of my students were on church Bible Quiz teams. During study hall or lunch periods they tested one another on large passages of scripture. It reminded me of the times I did the same pumping oodles of verses into my brain using flashcards I had made out of hundreds of index cards.
My motivation for memorizing scripture wasn’t based on studying to show myself approved to gain favor from God. I wanted to gain favor from my parents by earning enough points so I could go to summer camp for free.
Come to find out I was pretty good at memorizing what was required for several summers, but things began slipping my mind once school rolled around in the fall. Sadly by the time I finished high school I had forgotten that memorizing scripture did as it promised, giving me success and finding favor with the Lord.
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.” (
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance
all things that I said to you.” (John 14:26 NKJV)
“Thy (Your) word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin
against Thee (You).” (Psalm 119:11 NLKV)
“Your Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
Thy Word (Is a Lamp unto My Feet)

Using your memory verse cards try playing a memory game these four ways.
1 - Place stacked cards scripture side down and quote the verse from the reference. Place incorrect answers in a separate pile. This will help you to know which ones you need to work on the most.
2 - Place stacked cards reference side down and quote the verse. Place incorrect answers in a separate pile like the mentioned above.
3 - Place stacked cards verse side down. Have an additional player pick the card and only tell you the highlighted key words. See if you can quote it and do the same as above with incorrect answers.
4 - Lay out cards side by side on a table or floor. (Just like a children’s memory board game.) Do the same with another player’s cards with each having the same amount of cards turned verse side down. If players are learning the same verses only one stack is needed.
Taking turns have each person quote a verse. If they do it correctly the card is removed from the pile and placed on their side allowing them to take another turn. If incorrect it is returned to the position verse side down. The one who quotes all their verses first or has the highest number of cards on their side wins the game.
“My light shines favor for success.”
