“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Without meditation the truths which we know will never affect our hearts.
As a hammer drives a nail to the head, so mediation drives a truth to the heart!
Reading Scripture furnishes with matter–it is the oil that feeds the lamp of meditation.
Be sure your meditations are founded upon Scripture.
Reading without meditation is useless.
Meditation without reading is dangerous.
The reason we come away so cold from reading the Word is, because we do not warm ourselves at the fire of meditation.
“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of theLORD, and on His Law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2
