The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil. Proverbs 15:28

Like Tricia this past weekend Family Confrence spoke to me also. I agree with Tricia about the need in my own life for more purposful scripture memory so when I need it is just a heartbeat away. Sure I have a lot of scriptures that I have memorized over the years but I am not purposeful at all about it. When I need one or when one speaks to my heart I memorize it. But it could be weeks or months before a new one comes around. And do I still remember where they all are? hmmm...maybe a general whereabouts.

So I take Tricia's challenge to learn a new verse a week, this week's being Proverbs 15:28. I like Jamie and Beth (the blog lurkers) want my 'conversation to be with grace, seasoned with salt' Col 4:6 I want to be able to discern a conversation and know what if anything to say. Sometimes the hardest part is keeping my mouth shut ;o)

THat is a good challenge. I have a memory verse partner. We hold each other accountable and try to get together regularly to say our verses to each other.

Had my card stuck in my pocket when I left for work this morning.
Ephesians 5:15-16
Therefore, be careful how you walk, not as unwisemen, but as wise
making the most of your time because the days are evil
Beth

De-lurking to say, I'm up for the challenge! It is Hebrews 13:5 for me this week.

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you or forsake you."

What an awesome response!!! I've added some of these verses to the back of my card for this week too, just so I can remind myself what you are memorizing. To God be the glory!
