Learn by Heart

The devastation in Japan has once again impressed upon me the need to learn by heart Bible verses, hymns, and my catechism and to diligently teach them to my children.  Sure it's easy when you can rely on picking up the Bible or hymnal or even the piece of paper they're written on for the week.  But when everything is gone, there is only the memory.

We've had several older friends who ended up with Alzheimer's disease. I often think about how blessed they were that they learned Bible verses and hymns as children, because they had God's word even when many of their other memories were gone. Thanks for another reminder.
