Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry His Word with us wherever we go.
This week we will commit to memory verse 22 of Paul’s sermon. First, try saying verses 17–22 all together. Then, to help you memorize this next part of Scripture, repeat verse 22, pausing to consider each of the Lord’s actions. Finally, read it out loud one last time, pausing to consider the Lord’s description of David.

After this, he gave them judges until Samuel the prophet. 21 Then they asked for a king, and God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. 22 After removing him, he raised up David as their king and testified about him, “I have found David the son of Jesse to be a man after my own heart, who will carry out all my will.”
