Use your body

stick manWhat I’m memorizing:

Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
Proverbs 4:24

I memorized the order of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10) with this poem, working down the body, head to feet.

Proverbs 4:20-27 can also be learned using the body as a guide.

Let it start with your head…

  • Listen to His words with your ears (Prov 4:20),
  • and don’t let them escape from your sight (Prov 4:21),
  • for they are life to your flesh (Prov 4:22),
  • when you keep them in your heart (Prov 4:23).

Proverbs 4:24 continuesusing your mouth:

  • Straighten up, mouth! (Prov 4:24).

Stay away from the crooked edge of untruths. Keep a wide margin between you and words that deceive.

The next three verses will deal with eyes and feet.

To put his words in us—and keep them there—is a whole-body experience.
Use every part you can.
