Once you have established a time and place in your home, as well as readied your heart, it is time to go to the text. I like to go ahead and have my spiral bound notebook and pen close by to take a few notes, especially questions. It is our duty and our privilege to […]Read More How Can I Get More Out of my Bible Study: Read and Look
As I’m writing this it’s as if I can hear the voice of my younger brother asking his frequent question, What are you reading?
