Memorizing Scripture is a way to carry God’s Word with you wherever you go, keeping God-breathed instruction, reproof, and truth in your heart and mind each day.
As we read through 1 & 2 Samuel together, we will memorize five pivotal verses from these books. This week we are memorizing the key verse for 1 Samuel, a turning point in the story of God’s people: Israel asked for a king.
But the Lᴏʀᴅ told him, “Listen to the people and everything they say to you. They have not rejected you; they have rejected me as their king.”
-1 Samuel 8:7
