The Bible has plenty to say about itself and its indispensable place in our lives. It claims to be more precious than gold, sweeter than honey, sharper than a two-edged sword. It calls itself a lamp, a mirror, a fire, a hammer. It delights and it convicts. It comforts and it disturbs. It heals and it pierces. It’s alive and powerful, and accomplishes its purposes.
Martin Luther said, “The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; It has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold on me.”
Still, it can be a real challenge to sit still and listen to God speak to us through His Word. We find ourselves bored, distracted, too busy to take the time, puzzled over the meaning of what we read.
A good study to do with older children.
