Where do we begin in our quest to understand the bible? The answer is deceptively simple. We begin by reading it. “How” you read your bible, as important as that is, is nonetheless completely outweighed by “if” you read your bible. There is a classic story about the 20th century evangelist D. L. Moody. It is said that a woman approached Mr. Moody and said, “You know, I really don’t like how you approach evangelism.” Humbly, Moody responded, “I’m not very fond of it either. How do you do it?” After shuffling about and stumbling over her words the woman confessed, “Well I guess I don’t really evangelize.” Moody smiled and quipped, “Well I like my way better.” That principle is appropriate with bible reading as well. Any method of reading it is better than not reading it at all.
