Over the last few months, I've begun to feel a bit unfair as I run through Scripture memory work with the children.
Unfair to them as it seems that they are the only people who have to work on memorisation and unfair to me as I'm not getting the benefit of learning God's Word.
I can't really learn alongside them as I was blessed with parents who helped me learn Bible passages and I suppose that I tend to teach them ones I know-easier isn't it? Don't need to constantly check whether they are right or not.
But it has been many years since I have actively worked on learning Bible verses; about time to change my ways and to hide God's Word in my heart.
Then, the Lord's Day before last, I heard a very helpful sermon on the beginning of Philippians. Sometimes, God's Word really hits and I was very challenged about a Christian way of thinking. Philippians seems such a challenge to think in the truely God-honouring way and a few days after this, Caroline announced a challenge to learn Philippians in a year. The challenge obviously had my name on it but it may have your name on it too. The challenge starts on Easter Sunday and Caroline has a supporting blog. It would be great if many of us could do this.
