Reading the same passage of Scripture 30 days in a row sounds like a waste of time. But is it really?
Most Bible studies comes with a plan to read a small amount of Scripture each day. A study I recently worked through had me reading the same chapter (Colossians 3) repeatedly. In my mind that sounded like a waste of time. My thinking is read 30 different chapters and gain more ground.
That’s the thinking of a busy impatient mom! I need to get things done. I don’t have time to stay in one place for this long.
The author, Pam Forster, has really taken a much needed approach with Bible study, when writing this book. The book is intended to help busy moms get into the word and even bring their kiddos along for the spiritual learning.
I am really impressed with type of study. Some of the highlights include:
- Small doable segments of study – Yes, the busy mom can fit this study in by working at her own pace!
- Learning about word usage and placement – Words have meaning, but often we overlook the little words that actually have meaning and change the context of passage. Pay attention to what you’re reading; you’ll observe more.
- Applying what we’ve learned – Isn’t that the whole idea? Let’s learn from what we read and become more Christ-like.
- Furthering our studies by implementing the methods of study to other passages of Scripture – By being creative, we can do our own study with whatever book of the Bible we’d like to study next.
The book is only 83 pages, but it is packed with learning. That’s what makes a great Bible study. Instead of hearing the author go on and on about what they think the Scripture says, you are taught to study the Bible for yourself.
