Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalm 119:11
Scripture-arguments are the most powerful arguments to repel temptation with. Christ himself resisted Satan’s temptations with, It is written, Matthew 4:4,6,7,10. This, being hid in the heart, will preserve from sin (Psalms 119:11), and will mortify and kill those lusts and corruptions that are latent there. (Samuel Rosewell).
If a person commits to memory one new verse each day, beginning at three years of age, at seventy he will have learned almost 25,000 verses, that is, all the verses in the Bible suitable for memorising, there being 31,173 verses in all. Many families have begun this ” verse-a-day ” system, by repeating one verse a piece at the breakfast table each morning (or dinner table each evening). The little volumes…with a verse for each day are helpful in this plan, each person having a different book each year, and each member of the family a different one at the same time. (W.F. Crafts)
