Do You Read With Purpose?April 7, 2021 Save Article
PRAY OVER THIS:
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Why is it that sometimes when we read the Bible we leave our common sense at the door? You don’t just pick up a book, open it at random, and start reading in the middle of a paragraph. The book wouldn’t make any sense! In order to understand and get the full appreciation for the book, we read it sequentially and in paragraphs or units.
When you read the Bible, read for quality, not quantity. Don’t see how much of the Bible you can read. See how much of the Bible you can understand and apply! Maybe what you need to do is spend a week studying one verse.
In your Bible reading, always ask yourself what truth God is teaching you and how you can put what He's teaching into practice in your own life. Obey Him immediately.
