Here’s two Proverbs that I read this morning from the Bible… they expressed perfectly one of the reasons why I read my Bible every day…
“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom!” and “If you cease to hear instruction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge.” (Proverbs 19:20 &27 ESV)
I don’t know about you, but I’ve discovered I need to be reminded of important things! The Bible is filled with essential “life principles” that I need to be reminded of! As a “child of God” I need to hear my Heavenly Father say, “Now Son, don’t forget this – it’s important!” Any wise teacher will tell you that a secret to remembering important things – essential things – is reinforcement. I need the reminder and reinforcement that God’s word provides every day! I have it written in the front of my Bible… “This book is my all-sufficient guide for faith (that’s my relationship with God) and daily living!
Hey, I need instruction! I desire wisdom! If I cease to hear the instruction found in God’s word on a regular basis I’ve found that l stray little by little from what it teaches! THE BIBLE? IMPORTANT STUFF – ESSENTIAL STUFF! READ IT DAILY!
