Giving thanks begins with the Word
I remember as a pre-teen being challenged by my Mother to memorize scripture. It was something the whole family participated in. Maybe I should define what I mean by “challenged.” Here’s how it went down. “You kids have one week to memorize this chapter. If you succeed, you all get $5 each! If you don’t succeed, you get a whippin’!” (Spoken in Mom’s Texan drawl.) I want everyone to know that I was NEVER concerned about the whipping. I was excited about the $5!
