But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3

Last fall police in Argentina arrested a nineteen-year-old super-hacker who ran an elaborate cyber-fraud network. From a “technological cave” in his home, the teenager hacked into money transfer and gambling websites, skimming hundreds of thousands of dollars into his own account.

No wonder we’re worried about computer security. Hackers are everywhere. But the most notorious hacker in history is the devil himself, who tries to tamper with the marvelous computer system God has installed within us — our brains. He tries to deceive us and corrupt our minds.
We need the security system of God’s Word. The Bible says, “I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them” (Hebrews 10:16). Reading, studying, memorizing, and meditating on Scripture are the security systems of the mind. Starting a Scripture memory program is as easy as finding a verse to learn and resolving to repeat it aloud, say, ten times when you get up and ten times at bedtime. Sounds like a simple plan, but try it for a few weeks. You’ll be amazed how secure it helps you feel.
I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorizing Scripture.
