I've been a little busy this weekend with homework and painting another room in our house, so I'm short on words today! I know! My second scripture sunday post and I'm already slacking. Homework kind of justifies that though, I explain to anyone that I can't do something because of homework and it automatically becomes okay. I wish it worked that way with everything.
Because I'm short on words I thought I would direct you all in the way of Mackenzie's post about getting in God's word and how we tend to struggle with that a lot. To be completely honest, I fall out of reading it a lot whenever school is heavy in session. I make up excuses, but really, none of them are good enough. It's not about whether I have enough time or not, it's about whether I have enough time for the things I want to do. And a lot of times, those things are selfish things or things that are just completely unproductive.
And I recently discovered that when I went back through my Bible and found places that I had highlighted or underlined things, I felt good about that because it was like proof that I had been really dedicated once. I think it fed to my creative self that highlighter marks and notes make it look pretty. But that shouldn't be what it's about. Yes highlighting and marking is important because it helps us remember different things or draws our attention to certain things, but if we never go back to reflect on it, what was the point?
So after reading Mackenzie's post I've decided to try and be more dedicated to reading my Bible everyday. And I'm hoping that we can encourage each other.
