Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16
I was about ten years old before I even knew what the Bible was. So when a young preacher explained that the Bible would teach me how to live a good life and have eternal life with God, I was excited to find out more.
From the first time I opened the big Bible on the table and started reading, I was hooked! I couldn’t get enough of it! Then when I learned to read and speak English, I was able to get a small pocket Bible to carry with me wherever I went. I took it out in the subway, the bus, and just about everywhere else I went so I could read it while I was riding or waiting. I also had the Bible on tape so I could listen to it when reading wasn’t possible.
My habit of reading and listening to the Bible back then is still one I have today. Today I listen to the Bible on iTunes on my phone. And even though I have read and/or listened to the entire Bible many times, each time I do so, I learn something new.
I want to encourage you to make a habit of reading and listening to the Bible because this habit that changed my life so wonderfully can also change yours!
Pray: Father, thank You for Your Word, the Bible. Help me to always cherish and study it so that I can know Jesus better and love others as He did. In the Name of Jesus who is the Word, I pray, Amen.
