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)

James 1:3

Start the day off by reviewing v1&2.

Then add on v3

because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. (NIV 1984)

 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. (ESV)

We are tested to prove our faith genuine and the result of such testing is steadfastness or perseverance or endurance.  As my ESV Study Bible says - a life of faithful endurance amid troubles and afflictions.

Repeat today's verse over and over and over again!
You're doing great!
