Thrive Pathway Activity 41

Memorize and Understand 2 Timothy 3:16 - 17

Memorizing scripture has several benefits for you. First, being able to have God’s word committed to your memory keeps it in your thoughts and mind. Secondly, it keeps your mind thinking about God’s word throughout the day. Thirdly, God will bring a memorized scripture to your memory in situations where it is needed.


2 Timothy 3:16-17
"All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."
