Reading Deeply

Still, a knowledge of the truth is the best defense against error, and that is why, just in terms of reading, our study of the Bible is so important. For it is in the Bible that we find God's perspective on life, his rules of the game, his pattern for our development. So if we read anything deeply at all, we must read the Bible deeply.

AMEN!!!!! It is truly our Daily Bread that feeds and nourishes our Spirit. Without it we die, at least Spiritually.

So true Tracy. I read the bible daily. i do need to study it more though. What are some good pointers on how to really study the Bible? Do you have a particular system you use?

Reading slowly is something I have to work HARD at - I'm a scanner.
