What I read today:
Esther 8; Ecclesiastes 5; Zechariah 10; Revelation 15
Why is reading the Word of God so important? It’s the place that we hear God speak. It’s the single place where we can learn at the feet of Jesus. It’s where we can read the instruction on how to live.
The key is that we have to listen. Ecclesiastes 5 verse 1 tells us to “Guard our steps when we go to the house of God,” and that we should “draw near to listen which is better than sacrifice.”
It’s hard to listen if we’re spending all our time talking.
