1. As Janet Pope notes, “Instead of memorizing fragments of Scripture, you can memorize God’s whole truth fit together the way God intended.”
2. Memorizing an entire Psalm, chapter, or book of the Bible puts your verses allows you to memorize the context of your verses.
3. It’s easier to memorize several verses that go together, than random verses.
For instance, Psalm 23 is six verses. It is much easier to memorize these six verses than six random verses about the Lord being our shepherd.
If you have never memorized a passage of the Bible, I highly encourage it. Though it may feel overwhelming to memorize several verses rather than individual verses, just know whether you memorize a passage or individual verses both are done by memorizing one verse at a time.
