LeRoy Eims on the importance of Scripture memory: "I think two of the master strokes of the devil have been to convince people he doesn't exist, and that Scripture memory is only for children. He remembers the humility of defeat when Jesus Christ, who was tempted in all points like as we are, met him with the Word of God." (What Every Christian Should Know About Growing; p. 26-27)

Psalm 139:21

Sorry, I've been slacking on this lately.  We will finish this psalm this week though! :)

Today is Tuesday so review the book of Titus (hopefully you reviewed the Psalms yesterday) before moving on to today's verse.

Psalm 139:21
Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord, and abhor those who rise up against you?

This verse contains some strong language.
Here is what Barnes Notes on the Bible says...
He hated them.... in the sense that he disapproved of their conduct; that he did not desire to be associated with them; that he wished to avoid their society, and to find his friends among men of a different character....It is not that hatred which is followed by malignity or ill-will; it is that which is accompanied with grief - pain of heart - pity - sorrow......The feeling referred to is anger - conscious disgust - at such conduct; and grief, pain, sorrow, that people should evince such feelings toward their Maker.

Repeat this verse over and over again, then add on the first 20 verses.
