Why Bother?

Why bother to memorize scripture?  Here are 3 good reasons from Proverbs...

*when you roam, it will lead you
*when you sleep, it will keep you
*when you awake, it will speak with you

That covers all stances within a day!
Scripture is just the thing you can rely on when you are in the middle of calmly explaining to your child WHY they should or should not do something.
Scripture is just the right medicine when you have been treated unfairly or have been hurt by someone.
Scripture is just the right shield to keep you from gossiping, discontentment, irritability, or reactiveness.
Scripture brings peace in times of worry.  It is a salve to the broken heart.  It is a boost to the down hearted.  
It is a promise and a comfort.  It will never let you down.
Tuck some away today for that rainy day when you will truly need it!
