15 Scripture memory tips: 2) Stick ‘em up.



Here’s a handy Bible memory strategy that works for lots of people.

If you’re struggling to remember a particular passage of Scripture, why not write it on a sticky note or an index card and post it someplace in your home or work space?

If you’re struggling to remember a particular passage of Scripture, why not write it on a sticky note or an index card and post it someplace in your home or work space? Stick it on the front of the nightstand by your bed or on the bathroom mirror.

What about setting your computer, your smart phone, or your tablet - so your current memory verse appears as a graphic screensaver?

Maybe that’s the point of the Old Testament practice of displaying sections of God’s Word on door frames. Perhaps that’s why the priests wore certain passages of Scripture on their own garments.

Remember this familiar passage?

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9, ESV).

If we display special Scriptures in prominent spots, will we not be reminded of their content?  Placing passages of the Bible in key places, where we cannot help but see them and take notice often during the day is a great way to jump start our Bible memory.
