Mission “Bible Verse Memorization”

One of the steps Rebekah at moreradiance.com suggested in order to fight against sins and temptations [I mentioned her blog post in my Friday’s Favourites] is learning bible verses by heart.

I think this is an idea I should tackle. I’m not really sure how to start, but I found this great page with lots of Bible Memorization Plans, so I guess I’ll just pick one and start 🙂 I only have to find a suitable method that’ll help me follow through… Any tips?

2. Peggy

At the moment, the dog of our relatives is staying with us while they are on vacation. Peggy is such a sweet dog, and I love her! ❤

59 He said to another man, “Follow me.”

But he replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”

60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”

61 Still another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.”

62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

The passage is about the cost of discipleship. Three people say they want to follow Jesus; but each one adds another half-sentence to this statement.

And for each one, Jesus has a – at first sight somewhat confusing – response.
