heart hiding, Scripture Memorization

The Gift of Giving {heart hiding 15/39}


The Gift of Giving {heart hiding 15/39 }  Heart Hiding is hiding God’s Word in our heart by memorizing whole books of Scripture.  To read more go to the Heart Hiding page.

This is Week 39 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10.  How are you doing, my friend?  Don’t be discouraged.  Just keep working at it, and don’t give up.  I can personally testify to God’s faithfulness in this discipline, under the most trying circumstances.  

This is Week 39 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10,  where we are reviewing  2 Corinthians chapter 9, verses 1 through 15:

1 For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:

2 For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.

3 Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:

4 Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.

5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness.

6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.

10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;

14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.

15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

God’s Unspeakable Gift — Did you get in on the discussion of what the gift is (see last week’s post)?

This is the end of the chapter, which is unusually short!  Next week we’re on to chapter 10, which is the final chapter for 2015 — can you believe it???  Only eight weeks left, eighteen more verses!!

********Just a note about Scripture Typer, if you are using or considering using it.  Recently the non-mobile version underwent a huge update, which was a tad overwhelming at first.  First, if you have a comment or question, they are great about answering, and quite understanding.  And second, just hang in there until you get used to the new format.  In the long run it will be worth it.

If you have a comment or question for me, please use the comment box at the end of the post or the contact form at the top of the page.

Don’t forget to review the previous weeks’ verses 🙂  

The key to memorization is review!

Review 2 Corinthians 6:1-18; 7:1-16; 8:1-24; 9:1-15.

Have a great week working on these verses.  See you next Sunday.  God bless.
