24 Ways To Benefit From Meditating on Scripture
Adapted from How We May Read the Scriptures With Most Spiritual Profit by Thomas Watson (1874-1956)
How We May Read Scriptures with Most Spiritual Profit
Puritan Thomas Watson presents twenty-four very helpful directions to practice while reading Scripture. His aim is to help Christians get the most spiritual profit out of their reading. A central theme is developing proper value, reverence, and love for the Scriptures. He proposes possible hindrances to reading and directions to prevent them. The importance of profitable Bible reading is undisputed: “Why else was the Scripture written, but that it might profit us? God did not give us His Word only as a landscape, to look upon.” —Thomas Watson.
