Humanity is always looking for the benefits.
The health benefits of eating right are desirable.
The emotional benefits of exercise are well documented.
The financial benefits of intellectual property are valuable.
The relational benefits of covenant are identifiable.
Humanity loves the benefits that come from what they do.
Our love of benefits is what surprises me that humanity does not prioritize the word of God in our life. The benefits we seek, desire and dream about all come with the word of God, but it’s not a priority. The best thing is, it can become a priority starting right now and the benefits start kicking in immediately.
Wisdom on how to lead a family, a company, a church or a country are found in the word of God.
Healing for your body, soul or spirit is found in reading the word of God.
Financial stewardship, ideas, inventions and authority is taught in the word of God.
Relationship advice, parenting skills and how to be single is found in the word of God.
History and mystery are found in the word of God.
All the benefits we need for life and godliness are at your fingertips, on your bookshelf or sitting on your nightstand. Pick up your Bible and read, it’s so good for you and has lasting benefits it releases to you. The word of God is the gift that keeps on giving.
Psalm 19:5-7 “The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.”
