“The Bible is the Sword of the Spirit, but the Spirit cannot give you a weapon you have not stored in the armory of your mind.” –D. Whitney

     Suppose I offered you a thousand dollars in exchange for any and every verse you memorized in the Bible.  No gimmicks, no strings, no contingencies involved; for every verse you memorized and quoted you would receive cash money.  I believe it is safe to assume that most people would take a stab at it. As a matter of fact, I believe most people would be motivated to learn many verses every single day.

Obviously I cannot offer you such a proposition, but I can do you one better.  The value of each verse of Scripture is far greater than a thousand dollars.  Solomon said in Proverbs 3:13-16, “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.  For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.  She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.  Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor.”

Many find themselves living in spiritual poverty because they fail to access the wealth of knowledge and wisdom in Scripture.  God has given us sixty six books by which to live.  Every verse contains spiritual nuggets of truth.  Open the Bible, read it, memorize it; and in exchange God will give you treasures more valuable than monetary gain.
