Since this class started I've been convicted of not spending enough time memorizing. The first night the speaker asked us, "If your Bible were taken away from you, how big would your Bible be?"
How convicting. I've thought about that question a quite a bit. I talked with Allie about how I struggle in this area and she's going to keep me accountable.
So I am going to memorize 1 Corinthians 1:26-29. I've always loved this passage.
"Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him."
-1 Corinthians 1:26-29
Those verses also go along with the ones I read in Jeremiah a couple of weeks ago.
"This is what the LORD says:
"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches,
but let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the LORD."
