7 Unique Ways to Help Your Kids Memorize Scripture

As parents, we all want our children to grow up in the ways of the Lord. We are obligated to place within them a desire to follow Him, with at least a working knowledge of the concepts and tenets discussed throughout Scripture. However, in the age in which we live, kids have to deal with more issues today than in decades past. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” It is easier for them to become seduced by the world’s charms without a firm foundation based in Scripture. Memorization is key to hiding God’s Word in your child’s heart. Here are some ways to help your kids enjoy memorizing Scripture:

1. Create an incentive program

If your kids commit to memorizing scripture, give them prizes (a small prize like making their favorite dessert) if they memorize a certain amount of verses by the end of the week. Reward extra prizes for those who can recite whole chapters of scripture (like a movie night, for example.)
