Dominic Memorizes John 3:16

by Steve Ray on November 27, 2009

Dominic will be seven years old in January. We spent Thanksgiving together and I told him he’d get $5 to memorize John 3:16 by the end of the afternoon. He wrote it out, looked it up in the Bible, and began to seriously concentrate on memorizing this important verse in the Bible — the first verse I learned as a boy of seven years old.

He was pretty proud of himself and we will now embark on many more verses — until he has the whole New Testament memorized :-)

Hey parents and grandparents — this is serious business, as well as fun. Help your kids and grandkids memorize Scripture while their minds are young and supple. Like riding a bike or a horse, it will always stay with them.

Remember Proverbs 22:6 (hover you cursor over the verse reference to read it.)

circumcisionMy topic is “Faith and Works” — and how we are justified before God. You can listen live over the internet by visiting www.Catholic.com.

Much of my discussion will revolve around “the flint knife” and I will post all the questions and the link to the archived show after the fact.

You can prepare for the show by reading a few blogs I posted in the past here.
