Psalm 119:10-11
With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander
from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden
in my heart, that I might not sin against You.

What do you treasure most? Is it a special piece of jewelry? A photograph album? A chest filled with mementos of days gone by?

Jesus spoke of treasures once when He said, “Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matthew 6:20–21. The psalmist said that he had treasured God’s promise in his heart so that he would not sin.

The best way to treasure God’s Word in your heart is to learn it and memorize it so that it’s ready at hand when you need it. By taking a verse or two and patiently working it into your mind and heart, your responses and attitudes begin to change. They will line up with God’s way of doing things.

Take an index card and write down a verse that is relevant to your life today. Put the card in your purse and carry it with you this week as you work to memorize the verse. After a short time, you’ll find that God’s Word will begin to saturate your mind and influence your behavior.
When you take the time and effort to memorize the Bible, it means that you treasure God’s Word. And that treasure is for keeps.
