Natasha and I decided to have a memory verse to work on each week. This past week we memorized Galatians 6:8-9....let's see if I can do this from memory....
the one who sows to the flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up.
Is that right? Let me check....
I messed up a little, here are the corrections:
"The one who sows to *his own* flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. *And* let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up."
So, Natsha and I failed to pick another verse to memorize, so I am proposing this one that I found in the Psalms:
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
I love verses that use food and drink as an analogy of our relationship with God. The Bible is replete with them, Old Testament and New. And how fitting, since we struggle so much with food. It shows me 2 things: 1-God did give us food to enjoy, and we can glorify God by actually enjoying our food! 2-the enjoyment and satisfaction I get from food is NOTHING compared to the enjoyment and satisfaction that I get from Jesus Christ!
So, would you like to join with us in memorizing God's Word? As I said in an earlier post, that's the only way we're going to be able to fight temptation and gain victory in this area of our lives.
Please comment and let us know if you'd like to memorize this verse with us!!
