“A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read.” -Mark Twain
The other day I visited a church for the first time and was ushered to a seat in close proximity to the front. In the sermon the preacher made a point in Scripture and I reached for my iPhone to find the verse. All it took was one false click because the sound of Gospel Music blared throughout the auditorium. After I anxiously turned it off, someone whispered, “Hey man, do you normally go to Black Church? You got soul.” Facepalm! I sunk into my seat and desperately tried not to draw any more attention to myself. Although I’m happy that the Bible App reaches millions around the world, there is something irreplaceable about reading your Bible the old fashioned way and letting the pages hit you however God chooses to. If you’re feeling ambitious, then don’t just read the Word, but begin to meditate on and memorize it so that you can draw even closer to God.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17, ESV).
