Every Christian knows that engaging with Scripture is an important part of life with God. For some people, reading a few chapters has become a daily habit while, for others, it remains an unmet goal that can leave them feeling guilty.
However much you read, and whether that reading comes easily or through much struggle, the temptation for all of us is moving too quickly over the words of Scripture. (Ironically, those who try to read regularly through the Bible might be the most prone to this temptation.)
I came across a quote that pinpoints how we can make the most of our time in the Scripture, and the answer—perhaps to your surprise—isn’t more volume. It’s pace.
Maybe rather than striving for mileage and volume we can slow down and linger long enough in the Word to discover the deep riches of God’s grace.
