I'm trying to get my Sunday School class to "get" the importance of Scripture - bringing their Bible to class and memorizing God's Word.
Our March "Sword Passage" is Psalm 23 - which I learned in KJV. This is a really good illustration about how what you learn when you're young stays with you! My commitment is that whatever I'm asking them to learn, I'll come to class ready to recite.
Re-learning Psalm 23 in ESV is harder than I thought it would be...
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
