I am proud to say I remember using the one at 1:15 several times in high school.
A couple months or so ago I set to memorize the entire book of Philippians. There are a few of reasons I wanted to do this, but it started as inspiration from The Resurgence writer Tim Brister back in December 2010. Overall, I wanted a way to encourage myself to read more of the Bible. Not simply to read more text, mind you, but to read it with more depth of insight. For whatever reason I’ve been feeling a great need lately to meditate on the meaning of whole passages of Scripture at a time, to take in their broader meanings and get the bigger picture—and memorization was the way to do it. That way, even when I don’t have a Bible close at hand, I can easily bring some known passages to mind to think about and pray over how to apply them to my life.
Unlike their adult Christian counterparts of modern times, most ancient Hebrew children had the majority of what we today call the Old Testament committed to memory by the time they were in their early teens. (Imagine having the book of Numbers or Leviticus memorized!)
