The Weekly Podcast Encouraging and Equipping Young Men Around the World to "Stay Sharp" in Their Faith and Relationships

SC 179: Don’t Leave Your Weapons Behind!

Have you ever wondered why we should even memorize God’s Word in the first place? After all, couldn’t we just read it…and do so on our phones anywhere we go?

This week on the podcast, we’re going to take a look at the “why” and “how” of Bible memorization as we launch into out theme for this month! Join Andrew as he discusses “making memories” of God’s Word, and why we shouldn’t “leave our weapons behind” in the spiritual battles we face. We’ve also got a big announcement that some of you have been asking for! All that and more, on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!


Encouraging Segment: Making Memories of God’s Word

(Hosted by Andrew)

  • Deuteronomy 11:13-19

The June Challenge!

For the month of June, we’re going to turn our attention to something that’s crucial in our Christian lives. Something that, to borrow from Psalm 119:105, is a “…lamp unto [our] feet and a light unto [our] path.” This month, we’re diving into Bible memorization, and “hiding God’s Word in our heart!”

Here’s our challenge for this month: Memorize a passage at least 15 verses in length by the end of June!

Some suggested passages:

  • Matthew 5:1-16
  • John 1:1-16
  • John 15:1-15
  • Any other passage you want that’s at least 15 verses long!

For this month, you’ll also want to be working with an accountability partner–a parent, sibling, or close friend–who can check you on your passage as you work on memorizing it. Let’s take this month as an opportunity to help each other “stay sharp,” hiding God’s Word in our heart, and above just being able to quote them, learning about and studying the passages we’re memorizing!
