SC 181: It’s Foundational (Part 2)

Is there anything more we need to do with God’s Word if we’re memorizing it? After all, we’re not just reading, we’re committing it to memory! Actually, there is…something that’s so important, memorizing Scripture is worthless without it!

This week on the podcast, we’re going to continue looking at one of the most foundational and crucial truths in all of God’s Word–one that is critical to following God. This time, we’ll be looking at the comparison between  the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David, and how one minor difference changed their respective destinies. We’re also preparing to reveal our big surprise coming up in the next few days…so stay tuned! That’s all on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

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!

Be sure and check out our challenges page for more information!

  1. One piece of wisdom that I’ve learned from this week is to be intentional in just about whatever I do. One of the many verses that have stuck out to me this week is “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”1 Corinthians ‭10:31. My whole life should revolve around bringing glory to God. I should be doing everything I can to further His kingdom. Of course there are times to have fun. It is important to be able to have enjoyable times but that shouldn’t be my intent when I wake up in the morning. My intent should be to bless God and bless those around me! As a Christian young man, whatever I do I need to do with with my whole heart for God!

    This Sharpening Character challenge is so important because Proverbs expresses so many times how we need wisdom. Whenever I walk away from my quiet time I need to make it a priority to make sure that I’ve acquired wisdom that I can use throughout my Christian walk
