My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
I have countless times just casually opened the Bible and received a needed and timely word of direction and or confirmation for my life. It was exciting when this happened and it is surely clear God is always seeking to communicate with His children. Equally wonderful and more satisfying is the time spent in purposeful study of the Word of God.
Do Not Just Leaf through the Word
In leafing through the Bible you many good things will see.
It is better than no leafing through it would be.
But I prefer my children to study through certain parts;
And to gather its truth closely inside of their hearts.
The principles in the Word are so broad and wide,
You will never be able to hold all its wisdom inside.
So read and ponder it over and over; study it again and again.
You will find spiritual truth is of much value within.
The earth is full of books; some are very worthwhile to read,
But just leafing through them, you would miss many highpoints you would need.
Just so, and more so, are the Scriptures, there is so much I have for you planned.
To just leaf through causes hindrances to my ways understand.
Drink in the Word and consume them with appetite; as you taste its deliciousness,
You will grow much stronger than you would have ever guessed.
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
