3 Reasons NOT to Read the Bible

  1. Pearl, this post has me wondering about my own devotional life. Of course, Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to pray…but you made some great points!

    Love your blog! <3 🙂

    1. Glenda, thanks so much for your comment and kind remarks! Following Jesus (trying to emulate Him) would be a good reason TO read the Bible. Glad you pointed that out. 🙂

  2. Every time I read the Bible the Lord gives me new perspectives and more guidance 🙂 Scheduled time with God is however your responsibilities allow. I am not one to sit for an hour and study, my mind wonders 🙂 I take 10 min multiple times a day to pick up my Bible and read, take notes and pray. I think about what I have read then read a little more later. It sinks in better and can give God that full ten min without distraction. Time with our Lord is what he wants, he knows what works for us because he made us that way 🙂

    1. Polly, thank you so much for commenting! If I write a follow-up post and call it “3 Reasons TO Read the Bible” I would make one of them “time with God.” You hit the nail on the head that reading the Bible to spend time with its Author is a proper use of the tool. So thankful with you that our Creator doesn’t make rigid formulas for our relationship with Him. 🙂

  3. Love this!! I believe we need to schedule time to read and study God’s word but I also believe that some days our plans don’t go as we wish–a child is sick, a parent needs 24/7 care, a neighbor is rushed to the hospital and they need help—these are times to live God’s word and read later.
