Mt. Moriah, Jerusalem

Then Solomon began to build
the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah,
where the LORD had appeared to his father David.
It was on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite,
the place provided by David.
2 Chronicles 3:1
1st & 15th Scripture Memory 2010
Here we are at verse 4 already! If you are just joining us... Welcome! and I encourage you to stop by this post to get more information about our Scripture Memory 2010.
To pick my fourth verse, I looked at the upcoming two weeks and thought... I am going to really need some wisdom... and where else to get wisdom? God's word. God's precepts.
The fear of the LORD is
the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts
have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
I always think of Solomon asking God for wisdom in 1 Kings 3. Realizing that Solomon didn't always rely on the wisdom given by God encourages me to remember how I need to keep God's word fresh in my heart and mind daily.
One of the ways I memorize my scriptures are by printing them out and posting them on my bathroom mirror. Another way is to write them in a spiral and keep them with you... so that anytime you have a couple minutes... you can study them.
Last year, Beth Moore did a set of mini-videos about how to memorize scripture (see this post). She would encourage us to use the acrostic RENEW.
R - Read ItE - Examine ItN - Need ItE - Echo ItW - Wield It
So, what's your memory verse? Please include the entire verse with location and translation of the Bible. And share any tips you use for memorizing scripture... or why you chose your scripture.
