– Psalm 119:105 (ESV)
Bible study done well takes work. It is usually measured in long hours not short minutes. It forces us to be an active thinker instead of a passive recipient. It demands concentration, and sometimes that’s a tall order for generations who’ve been raised by ADD television programming which pounds our brains with a thousand images a minute. Therefore, it shouldn’t surprise us that struggle and difficulties arise after someone puts a passage of Scripture before us and says, “Study this text. Observe, interpret and apply what you read.”
And that’s definitely something worth working through.
