Memorizing Scripture

From today’s Proverb, Proverbs 2:
My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.
The above verses set some conditions on our understanding the fear of the LORD and finding the knowledge of God. Notice that they aren’t optional conditions, nor are they singular in nature. Instead, the scripture states that if you do the above 8 things, then you will understand. Further down in Proverbs 2 it promises that if you have God’s wisdom it will save you from wicked men and the adulterous woman. I’d say that these are definitely things we want to be saved from.
So, when was the last time you memorized a verse or verses of the Bible? Do you find it difficult to do so? Do you set aside time, strategically to do so? I fail in this area. Can you share any encouraging words or practical advice to help people be better at storing up God’s commands within our hearts??
