Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. (2 Timothy 2:7)
It’s easy to read the Bible too quickly, especially if you’ve read the story before. After all, you know the ending. But reading quickly not only risks missing deeper knowledge but also underlying emotions.
