Do You Know Your Burger Better Than Scripture?

We memorize whatever we hear repeatedly

According to a 2007 study: “Put to the test, Americans recalled the seven ingredients of a McDonald's Big Mac hamburger and members of TV's 'The Brady Bunch' more easily than the Bible's Ten Commandments.”(1)

We memorize whatever we hear repeatedly
Our memories are incredible. If we hear something repeatedly, we memorize it, whether sights, smells, sounds, names, places, phone numbers, or song lyrics.

Without looking it up, I know a Big Mac has "two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.” I don’t even like Big Macs, but I’ve memorized the ingredients from repetitious McDonald’s ads.

I’ve memorized Scripture too, but I’m wondering which I know more – God’s precious Words or empty words.

Let's consider how we might add repetition of God’s Word to our schedules this week.

“The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.” Psalm 19:8

Did you know that repetition serves other good purposes in our spiritual lives? Never Enough
Have you ever wondered about the childlike desire for Repetition? Do It Again, Poppy!
