Basic #5: Teaching
Why does it seem like reading the Bible is more of a duty than a privilege? Do we get the idea that we should read the Bible because it's the thing to do, or is there something more to it? Maybe if we begin to see the Bible for what it is, a holy book that contains vast riches and the keys to understanding how Jesus lived and how He wants us to live, we will begin to crave God's Word as a newborn baby craves milk.
