300 bibLE VERSES
“… whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven…” Matthew 5:19
An eight-year-old girl was excited to hear that kids in their school who memorized 300 Bible verses by the end of the school year would win a free two-week summer camp. Her parents were equally thrilled. The father would wake her up 6 a.m. to pray and memorize the verses for the week. In the end, she qualified for the free summer camp.
But the girl cut the trip short because she got homesick. A feeling of disappointment came over her. After working hard for so long, she thought she didn’t get her reward.
Much later, she married and had two children. One day, her husband suffered a heart attack. In the ambulance, she remembered God’s promise in Jeremiah 29:11 about His wonderful plans for her. A certain peace came over her and she became a source of comfort to her children because she remembered God’s Word. Her husband died but the seeming tragedy was testament to the Lord’s unfailing love and comfort.
Today, Phyllis Henry is the President of Faith Walk Center in the US. Her experience of memorizing those 300 verses jump-started her walk with the Lord. She realized that that was the real reward! Ariel Driz
REFLECTION:
How hungry am I to learn and remember God’s Word?
Lord Jesus, grant me the grace to devour Your Word. Help me to remember and plant them as seeds in my heart.
Amen.
