“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105
When I was a little kid, I would walk with my friends around Angeles City in Pampanga, Philippines. Most of the time we would walk around some Protestant churches, where we would always see people reading the bible. And each time we would pass by that place, one of our friends – Angel, would never forget to exclaim – “Drink Bible Everyday!” Pointing to these people we observed to reading or to holding a bible each day we walk by.
They say Christian life is a journey and in this exciting journey, we need a guide. We need His word to straighten and direct our paths. Take one day at a time in walking with God, and in each day take time to read the bible, His love letter to us. With reading and reflecting on God’s word, our paths will be brightened and lighted as the sun covers the earth. Everyday is an opportunity for us to read and ponder His word as we continue to walk with the Light and to the Light. If you are a student, read the bible before reading your textbooks. If you are a busy single working person, read the bible on-line or subscribe to daily devotionals. If you are a working parent, share time with your spouse to meditate on God’s word. It’s not everyday we receive a love letter, and God has sent us one that expresses His unconditional love for us. Let His word guide you. Let His word quench you. Let His word refresh you. Let His word cleanse you. Dive deep into His message to you.
My friends, I am your “Angel” encouraging you – Drink Bible Everyday!
