Today I was listening to Micheal Savage on the radio. During his show he said that one of his professors in college said something like, "Don't worry about memorization. Just learn to get the information when you need it. And know the stuff that is important"
That immediately hit me. So true! I think about how many people memorize the Bible and how I spend years memorizing the Bible. And for what purpose?
To summarize what Mr. Savage said, "Know the stuff that is important and know where to look up the rest."
Living out what is important is so much more important than memorizing lots of scriptures. What should we live out? "Love the Lord your God with all you mind, soul, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself." AND "I give you a new command... love your brother..." AND ... ".... if I have not love.... I am only a noisy gong or clanging symbor.
