The difference between reading the bible & studying the bible is a piece of paper & a pencil. You begin to study when you start writing things down. ~Charles Swindoll
This is really true. I can read the bible, but if I don’t write it down, I never seem to remember what it was I read or where it was at.
Studying the bible, writing down your thoughts, the verses, your prayers, is a way to make sure you will remember your time with our Father. It helps to go back and see what was going on during that time in your life also. I like to date my pages and sometimes I go back and read and see where His hand has touched. It’s amazing!
So.. get out that bible and a notebook and start studying!!
Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the LORD. (NIV)
