I Don’t Know How

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

As mentioned in the previous post one of the reasons given for not reading/studying the Bible is, I don’t know how. Let me ask parents, if your child said that to you, what would you response be?

Try it…you can do it…you have to learn some time…yes you do…

Maybe we haven’t talked about the “why?” We are spiritual people. We have a need to meet with our Creator. The Bible is the best way to learn about God and how He related/s to us. When we read the Bible our faith grows.

Even if you don’t know how, you have to start somewhere. In every other area of our life, not knowing is addressed by research, trial and error, or some other effort. Why when we come to Bible reading do we just give up?

Priorities. We need to rethink and reset our priorities. We spend enormous amounts of time on other things that are not so significant as our spiritual health. To reset priorities we must make a plan. Set a time and prepare a place. Then stick with it. You are beginning a new discipline. It takes time to establish it. Don’t give up! You can do it! Read the Bible for the sake of your heart.
