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.)
