Verses You Should Memorize (And Why)

Certain passages in the Bible are familiar to us because, over the years, they have been stitched into decorative pillows and turned into inspirational posters. But just because something is familiar doesn’t mean that we understand it. Let’s take some time to dig a little deeper into these verses – who knows, we might end up doing some cross-stitching of our own!

Some of Joshua’s most well-known words often serve as both a declaration of faith and a piece of kitschy home decor at the same time. But the context in which they were first uttered was as real as it gets, and if we let them, these words will continue to present us with a choice and a challenge for ourselves and the people we love.

Isaiah 40:1-2, 27-31
