As was mentioned last week, I am encouraging us each to commit to memorization of scripture this year. Also as promised, the commentary will be brief each week. In the busyness of our culture, our focus will be primarily on time devoted to memory. The commentary given is simply to help fram our minds around the text in a way that hopefully helps the memorization process. Maybe you have your own plan or desire, but if you don’t, then follow along with this guide. 2 verses each week will enable you to have the Sermon on the Mount committed to memory by the end of the year. If you didn’t get started last week or miss a week or two along the way, 2 verses is very easy to make up. I hope you will join me as we rededicate ourselves to the discipline of memorization that has been largely put aside for too long. May you be blessed on this journey.
Matthew 5:3-4 (HCSB)
3 “The poor in spirit are blessed,
for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
4 Those who mourn are blessed,
for they will be comforted.
Grace to you and peace from God, our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
