There's an old song that goes, "Read your Bible, pray everyday and you'll grow, grow, grow." The song is simple and the truth is clear: when we read our Bibles and pray, we grow. And we won't just grow in our knowledge of God and of scripture, but in our love for God and others. However, sometimes the thing that keeps us from reading scripture is not knowing where to start.
Here's a few practical steps:
1. SET A SPECIFIC TIME
Pick a time that works for your schedule and season of life.
2. USE A SPECIFIC PLAN

3. USE A SPECIFIC METHOD
S.O.A.P. (Scripture - Observation - Application - Prayer)
4. COMMIT TO IT
Even when you miss a day… keep coming back to it
