Reading Bible quotes is a great way to improve your life on a personal level. Quotes from the Bible help us understand life a little bit more, make us appreciate all the good things and hardships that come our way, as well as guide us in making tough choices and decisions.
But a Bible won’t always be available right away. And it would look weird if you had to sift through the pages of the Bible for guidance all the time while others are around. In this case, you need to memorize quotes from the Bible, or Bible quotes. It might seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually quite easy if you put real effort into it. Here are a few pointers.
Things You’ll Need:
*New Kings James Bible or New American Standard Bible
*3×5 note cards
*Pen or pencil
1.Use your Bible to find Bible quotes you wish to memorize.
2.Record the Bible quotes. Take a 3×5 note card and write down the Bible quote word-for-word. Make sure everything is exactly as they appear in the original text – spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. Of course don’t forget to write the reference on the top right corner of the note card.
3.Read the Bible quote, and then read it again. Read it aloud six or seven times, making sure to familiarize yourself with the context of the quote as well. Pay attention to the central idea behind the Bible quote. This will help you lots in committing the quote to memory.
4.Turn over the card and write on it the first letter of each word from the Bible quote, including capitalization and any punctuations. Again write the reference on the top right corner of the card.
5.Check your progress. Read the first side out loud and then turn the card over and see if you could recite the Bible quote using the first letter guide on the back of the card. If you don’t get this one the first time, don’t be discouraged. Memorization of Bible quotes take time.
6.Master each Bible quote. Continue reading the Bible, writing down your favorite quotes on a 3×5 note card, and repeating the process until you could recite the quotes without looking at the guides.
7.Review, review. Review and recite the Bible quotes every day. Do this for a time and you’ll quickly notice the difference in your ability to take in new Bible quotes and retain to memory old ones. You’ll master the technique in no time. Soon you’ll be able to memorize any Bible quote you want, anytime you want.
Reading the Bible and memorizing Bible quotes is easy, given you are determined to pursue this personal task. It can be difficult at first, as all memorization activities are difficult. But over time you’ll get a feel of the technique, and everything should be easier from then onwards. The key is patience, and the passion to memorize the holy scriptures.
