Memory Cross has developed a fun way for children to memorize Bible verses. Each card has four panels that make a never ending loop. The design fascinates children as well as adults. There are several advantages when using Memory Cross to memorize Scripture:
- Card breaks Bible verse into four panels so it is easier to memorize.
- Unique design is captivating which means kids will have a hard time putting it down. As they fold through the card over and over again they'll put God's Word into their hearts and minds.
- Each part of the verse is broken down which allows kids to focus on what each part of the verse means.
- Psalm 119: 11 says "I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you."
Chuck Swindoll wrote, "I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than Scripture memorization. . . . No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified" (Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1994], p. 61).
