Do you remember that song? “Read your Bible, pray everyday, pray everyday, pray everyday. Read your Bible pray every day and you’ll grow, grow, grow!” As you say “grow”, you inch up taller and taller. Well, I don’t go around singing that song (much) anymore, but it’s true. You might not actually get taller by reading God’s Word, but you certainly do grow – spiritually! In fact, the song also says, “Don’t read your Bible forget to pray and you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink.” That’s true, too! Reading God’s word everyday keeps it fresh in our minds, easy to recall and readily available to claim in a tough situation.
