Being Creative Pays Off

Dale Lanier, a convenience store owner in Snead, Alabama, found a creative way to get people to learn Bible verses. If a person could come into his store and recite a Bible verse he had picked out, that person would get a free drink of their choice.

Lanier says he has been doing this for six years. Often, he has given away two to twelve drinks a day. And, he has had whole families come in and recite the verse.

That's pretty clever. I'm all for positive reinforcement or whatever will motivate me to memorize a verse. I'm the worst at it!

I'll try once more to answer, Carol. Somehow, blogger isn't letting me comment, since the breakdown. I had lots of problems with my blog for 3 days!

Anyway, my son said we should go visit that convenience store. It's not all that far from us. Of course, we don't know which one it is, but it wouldn't be hard to find in that little town.

I think, getting older, you lose the ability to remember as much as you did when you were young. I used to could remember verses with no problem, but it's not that easy now.
