Learning the Bible without applying it in your life is like extreme couponing. It boggles my mind that some people get so addicted to “saving money” that they spend thousands of dollars buying stuff they couldn’t possibly ever use in a lifetime.
Yes. Studying the Bible is important. But it should not be about how many verses you can memorize or how many times you’ve read it cover-to-cover. It should be about getting nourished to go forth and do His will.
It should be like having dinner with the love of your life, a relaxed and refreshing time when you come together to celebrate the whole of your relationship up until that point and nourish yourselves for the whole of your relationship that will come after that point.
“Your words were my joy, the happiness of my heart.” Jeremiah 15:16
