“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
In this life, we need to read scripture so that we glorify God in everything that we do. This life isn’t about you or me, your cousin or the neighbor across the street. It is 100% about God and His kingdom. Fortunate are those who understand the former early on in their lives. When we were younger, we used to think like the young. Now that we are older, we have to think like a man. We are to live our lives to advance God’s will.
My advice? Read scripture, daily. It is great food for your soul. God is the best teacher. He will tell you what you need. We simply need to be His best students and follow.
