Do you read the Bible?
If yes, pause for a minute and think before you answer this: why do you read the Bible? Is it to tick a box on your daily to-do list, to ease your conscience, to accumulate knowledge, to prepare sermons, to find out how to be successful and blessed by God...? What is your reason?
You may be familiar with this popular little song that is usually taught in Sunday schools, "Read your Bible, pray everyday". And it goes on to say "if you want to grow".
Well, this is true. But it is only partly true. Reading the Bible is good, but if it was enough, every Christian who reads the Bible would be a spiritual giant - which we know is not the case.
