Scriptures: Reading of

Resource Toolbox


Lord Bacon tells of a certain bishop who used to bathe regularly twice every day, and on being asked why he bathed thus often, replied, 'Because I cannot conveniently do it three times.' If those who love the Scriptures were asked why they read the Bible so often, they might honestly reply, 'because we cannot find time to read it oftener.' The appetite for the Word grows on that which it feeds on. We would say with Thomas a Kempis, 'I would be always in a nook with a book.'
