Read Your Bible, Pray Every Day

My pastor knows his people. My wife and I needed this practical exhortation to jump-start our annual Bible reading.

I do think that one of the biggest lessons I’m still learning about life in this modern world is that every choice to value something is necessarily a choice to devalue something else. If I’m going to value Bible-reading, other things are going to have to fall by the wayside (until my adolescent dream of being able to pause time is finally realized). Sometimes I, an adult Christian with a fair bit of Christian training, do need to be told by my pastor: go to bed!
