And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13and to keep the commandments and statutes of the LORD, which I am commanding you today for your good? —Deuteronomy 10:12-13

Various methods of memorization work for different people. Using mnemonics may be a technique that works well for you. Tyler Kenney passed on this helpful device for memorizing Deuteronomy 10:12-13.

There are five “requirements” that the LORD gives Israel—

  1. Fear
  2. Walk
  3. Love
  4. Serve
  5. Keep

To help remember the order and first letter of each of these, I made a little sentence using the same first letters of each word (like “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” in math: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction).

So here it is: Five Ways Loyalists Serve the King.

Do you have advice for more memory techniques that have been effective for you?

    Nice! I too am using the 5 ways to honor God, but I didn’t think to make up a sentence.

    Thanks Jonathan

    Great idea. I typically use the old fashioned method of writing the verse out several times and saying it out loud as I write. Guess I’m dating myself here?
