That Old Book?
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
Most of us struggle to spend time in God’s Word…but that doesn't change the fact that every minute you spend reading the Bible will benefit you as well as the people in your life. It’s kind of like exercise: the more you do it, the healthier you become.
As a family, spending time reading and talking about God’s Word will always prove to be beneficial. It may not seem like it at the time – the kids might act bored and mom and dad might get frustrated - but God’s Word will never come back void and will always accomplish what it is intended for (Is. 55:11).
Today’s verse makes a great case for why we all need to read and study our bibles. It’s a great road map for life…but only if you unfold it and look at it! The average smartphone has navigation built into it, but it can only help you if you bother to open the app. Like the Bible, it shows you where you are, where you need to be, and how to get there.
APPLICATION: Take a few minutes to talk about the things God’s Word has taught you about yourself and about life in general. Let your children come up with the Top 3 Reasons why you should all study God’s Word and then ask the Lord in prayer to help you do just that on a regular basis.
