We’re all busy people and try our best to make time to read the word of God, but sometimes we let other things get in the way of it. In a recent article on Eternity Newsthey are helping all of us set aside time to read the Bible.
Try some of these practices!
1) WORK OUT A TIME
Try to work out a time everyday that best works for you to read the Bible and stick to it! Find your favorite place, seat and time that will help you.
2) PURCHASE AN ALARM CLOCK
For most of us our phones are our alarm clocks, but smart phones also get in the way of us accomplishing things sometimes. We end up scrolling through social media, texting our friends when the alarm goes off instead of reading the Bible. Do yourself a favor, go buy yourself an alarm clock.
3) UNDERSTAND WHY YOU’RE READING
We often are disappointed in the fact that we don’t read the Bible enough especially when we think about all God has done for us. If we focus our heart and mind on all the blessings God gives to us on a daily basis it should make us want to be dedicated to reading and understanding the word.
4) TRYING PULLING OUT YOUR BIBLE INSTEAD OF AN APP
This goes back to being on our phones and not using the Bible app. When people text us while we’re reading the word it distracts us. Pull out your Bibles, put the phone down and get those highlighters out if needed.
