It is indisputable that God wants us to think about what we read in His Word. While some find it challenging to regularly read the Bible it is important to remember that God doesn’t simply want us to read, say, three chapters of Scripture and go about our daily business; rather, He wants us to read however-many-verses (or chapters) of Scripture and think about what we read. I know that in our fallen-frames such an exercise can sometimes seem difficult; and I know that sometimes it seems like there’s something wrong with our ability to stay mentally focused on a biblical subject without getting sidetracked; but I also know that the Spirit of God is greater than the weaknesses in our flesh; therefore, this brief exhortation is meant to be an encouragement for you wherever you are in your Gospel-centered walk with Christ to think about what you read.
The premise of this exhortation is one that every Christian would agree with: a little Bible-reading is better than no Bible-reading. Every Christian would affirm that the Bible, being the inspired word of God (2 Tim 3:16), and being the spiritual food by which man lives (cf. Mt 4:4), even if ingested in very small amounts, is an exponentially better option than going without it. That being said, too often it can happen where professing Christians can go days, weeks, and perhaps even months without reading the Bible. My hope is that this brief exhortation will help you avoid that trap.
