How to Learn Micah 6 v 8 Plus Free Colouring Page - Bible Memorization


I could never do it!

          Do what?

Memorize a chapter of one of the Books of the Bible!

Yeah that's not so easy,  

BUT  

you can learn ONE verse of the Bible.







Let's look at a verse from one of the shorter books of the Old Testament  -  Micah

Many people think they could never manage to memorize a whole Psalm or a whole chapter of Scripture.

It is a rather daunting challenge especially if you have never learned any scripture before.

So we are not even going to tackle all of the book of Micah or even of it's 7 chapters but we will take Micah chapter 6 verse 8


"He has shown thee, O man, what is good; 

and what does the Lord require of thee,

but to do justly,

and to love mercy,

and to walk humbly with thy God?"



So in memorizing this verse we will look at 3 things:
  • Memorising Tips
  • A Music Video of Micah 6 v 8
  • Some Freebies to help you.








Memorising Tips
If you read the Top 10 Ways to Learn Scripture you will see that I give 10 tips to help in this process but we don't have to use all 10 of them on each verse - just the ones that suit best with the verse.


For Micah 6 v 8 I'm going to advise using tips 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 10

 



1.  Read the verse often, every day, multiple times in the day.

Leave a bookmark in your bible and every time you go past it grab the bible and open at the verse etc.  (you will pick up other ideas later in this post).

Reading and repeating somethings over and over is the natural way to get it into your head.

With this verse you may feel like breaking into 2 parts as it is a long verse but when reading it is often best to read the whole verse to instil the meaning into your mind which actually helps with the memorizing.



"He has shown thee, O man, what is good; 

and what does the Lord require of thee,

but to do justly,

and to love mercy,

and to walk humbly with thy God?"




2.  Write out the verse several times.

Why?  Because he action of  WRITING  helps us learn anything.

If you note the way I have written the verse above in 5 lines and use this method of writing it out yourself you will find it easier to get a kind of flow to the wording.  As we all know that as we write we often say the words in our heads then you will understand why I mention the flow of the words.








6.  Question and Answer within a verse.

If you ask a question you expect an answer to that question and in some verses we see that pattern so use it to your advantage when memorizing.

When the first part of the verse poses a question check if the second part answers it and if so then learn it as a question and an answer - it really will help.

Let's look at Micah 6 v8 to help you see my point.

The first two lines as we have it written here seem to state a fact and then lead into a question


"He has shown thee, O man, what is good; 

and what does the Lord require of thee,


The last 3 lines then give an answer


but to do justly,

and to love mercy,

and to walk humbly with thy God?"



So as you read or write this verse think what the question is about and what the answer is and then each will help you to memorize the other.




8.  Make it easy to see the verse clearly and regularly each day.


In no.1 above I mentioned your bible and a bookmark

but

we cannot have our Bible at hand every moment of the day so if you feel you need frequent readings of the verse like pop-up reminders then do the following:

Get a post-it pad and write the verse out clearly on it then tear off the post-it and stick it on
  • the mirror you will use first thing each morning and last thing each night
  • the front cover of your Bible
  • the front cover of the book you are currently reading
  • the door of the fridge
  • the inside of the door of the cupboard where you go to get your favourite mug for that cup of coffee








9.  Make or use Bible Verse Graphics 

The picture of Micah 6 v 8 near the start of this post is an example of a Bible Verse Graphic.

A picture with the words written on it clearly.
By making these yourself you will learn as you create them.

or

by using ones made for you that you keep close to hand
(see my freebies below)


I also post a bible verse graphic every morning on my
so if you want to be encouraged by a verse each day or have a graphic you can Share to your timeline or Save in Facebook then click through to my Facebook Page and be sure to like and follow the page to see those graphics in your feed each day.



or Colouring Pages of the bible Verse

While colouring in a Bible Verse Page you will be spending time around the words and this also helps to learn the verse.


or Phone Screensavers / Wallpaper

What better use of your phone - to keep that verse in front of you each time you go to check your messages.

For this you will need it to be a suitable portrait shape and size so most of the normal verse graphics you see will not suit.


I have a few verses made out for screen savers & you can download them from






and finally my favourite way 
but it is not always possible to use this method


10.  Sing it.

It is well known that in singing a song you can easily learn the words of the song.

Many people have benefited in memorization from putting words of scripture to music so


If you can find a song based very closely to the scripture passage then use it.
