The Value of Memorizing Scripture
Willard, professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern
California, wrote, “Bible memorization is absolutely fundamental to
spiritual formation. If I had to choose between all the disciplines
of the spiritual life, I would choose Bible memorization, because it
is a fundamental way of filling our minds with what it needs. This
book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth. That’s where
you need it! How does it get in your mouth? Memorization.” Dallas Willard in “Spiritual Formation in Christ for the Whole Life and Whole
Vol. 12, no. 2, Spring, 2001, p. 7.
