God’s Word: Closer than Your Smartphone

Memorizing Scripture has become a bit old fashioned in recent years. With smartphones putting every Bible translation at our fingertips, we can simply search for a passage when we need it. But having the Bible at our fingertips is different from having it on our minds and in our hearts.  Have you ever gotten a song stuck in your head and didn’t know why?
