As a family we are memorizing the book of Titus. The older boys will be doing this for their Sunday School class that starts this Sunday, so Chris thought it would be good for the whole family to do it as well. Everyone is doing great! We practice every night after dinner and our family devotion has been read. Here's what we have so far: "

(1) Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness, (2) in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago, (3) but at the proper time manifested, even His word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior,

(4) To Titus, my true child in a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. (5) For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you, (6) namely, if any man is above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion.

Memorization is a great skill to have, whether you are memorizing scripture, songs, or poems. Obviously, scripture has many more benefits than the others, but the skill of memorizing is a great exercise for your brain.

What are you memorizing?
