How do I/ we find time to read the Bible?

A: You won’t find it! Make it!

“Don’t leave the word to fill the cracks. Force other things into the cracks.” – John Piper

Mary and Martha – Luke 10: 38-42

“Only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better…”

Luke 8:14 – “The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.”

****”If most people would trade their TV time for Bible reading, they’d finish the entire Bible in four weeks or less.”

We fill up on other things and therefore don’t have an appetite (or time) for God’s word.

Fill up on God’s word and you won’t have an appetite for what the world has to offer.
What do you need to force into the cracks in your life to make time for God’s word? TV? social media? sleep? F3?

Bonus Tips:

How to get motivated?

Set a goal (read the Bible in a year, a book of the Bible, a devotional, a Bible study)
Lead at 3F, a small group, or class
Focus on an area you are struggling with (lust, anger, pride, worry)

We do what we want. What do you want?

Prayer Requests:

Spam recovering from back surgery

Swan recovering from broken ribs

Monkey’s friend battling cancer

Belding’s daughter in law releasing new book!


Let’s encourage one another to spend as much time in God’s word as we do working out.
