The Bible says:
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
~ 2 Timothy 2:15
It is so important to study God's word. Spending quality time in His word really allows us to grow closer to Him.
How can we spend quality time?
It isn't just quantity
Reading your Bible isn't just putting time in. Pray before you open God's word and ask God to open your eyes to something new. Ask him to show you something. Don't just check off your chapter for your reading list. Be open to learning something.
Study a specific subject
I'll admit this is something I struggle with. I have a hard time putting in extra work to study out a specific subject. My husband LOVES doing his reading this way. He has notes on his studies. It is something I purpose to do. Last year I took some time on the word LOVE.
Talk about what you've read
So simple but you will see when you talk about your scripture reading you will gain insight from others. We waste so many hours on idle chat surely we can spend some time telling our friend and family what excites us in The Word!
