We have the most important and precious book in America, the Bible. Have you and I taken it for granted? Does it just sit on a desk collecting dust? How often do you and I read it? How often do we mediate on it? When was the last time we worked at memorizing a verse and hiding it in our heart?
In some countries overseas they have a share a Bible meaning one week you have it and the next week it has to be passed on to someone else. They literally take turns sharing that one Bible.
God tells us to study His Word, mediate on it, and memorize it in verses like the following:
"Keep this Book of the Law on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." - Joshua 1:8
"For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope." -Romans 15:4
"My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity." - Proverbs 3:1-2
So many verses about the importance of reading , studying, memorizing, and mediating on the Word of God. Let's be sure NOT to take this precious Book for granted. Some day we may not have it!
