Why Teach Children to Memorize Scripture?

The Bible is clear that we should teach our children about God and His word. We shouldn’t leave it up to the Sunday School teachers at our church. As parents, it is our responsibility. It is not always easy to do, and we might ask ourselves why we need to commit a lot of time and effort into doing this. After all we take them to church where they learn about God and read His word. They also see our example as Christian parents living out our faith. So why should we have to spend a lot of time with them reading God’s word and helping them to memorize Scripture? Well here is why.
