The Great Gift of Scripture

God has given us such a special gift in His Word. It is sad how often we take it for granted by neglecting the truths for life that God has given us there. This can happen when we do not read the Bible very often, when we read it too fast or when we do not thinking through a passage after getting up from our time of reading.

Whether we hear the words of Jesus, the wisdom of the Proverbs, the heart cries for God in the Psalms, the direction and theology of the New Testament letters or the many narrative lessons of the Old Testament there are thousands of places we can find insight for every day of our lives. What a treasure we overlook so often!

I would encourage you to read the Word of God now. Stop reading this blog and go pick up your Bible and get lost in it so that you might find the grace of God that leads to life abundant!
