Too Many Settle for Too Little in Bible Reading

Desiring God:

Just because you’ve looked at your Bible — even memorized it — doesn’t mean you’ve seen what’s there, much less understood its meaning and significance for your life. Most of us are far to quick to run to commentaries or other aids to understand the meaning of the text in front of us, but such Bible study produces a shallow, second-hand payoff.

To understand God’s word with power, we need to see it for ourselves, patiently investing time to dig deep and ask questions of the text.
