NO BIBLE, NO BREAKFAST.
TEXT: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2Timothy 2:15).
A story was told of a young man who told his friend that he never read the Book of Revelation, because it contained a terrifying account of future happenings. Yet, Dick Eastman says, “The person that spends time thinking about the thoughts of God will find great depth and understanding that will touch all areas of his life.” Do not skip but read every part of the Bible. Know that every word of God is pure, do not take away from it.
Read the Bible and other devotional guides systematically every day. Your guiding principle should be, ‘No Bible, no breakfast; no Scripture, no sleep’ The Bible is to your soul, what food is to your body. It gives peace, comfort, hope and courage to those who read it. It is the bedrock of success. Read your Bible purposefully, painstakingly, meditatively and prayerfully. Read and obey it so as to be wise and approved of God.
