I am a strong believer in the fact that we must read God's word daily so that we learn to fear the Lord and keep His ways.
“And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God by keeping all the words of this law and these statutes, and doing them.” Deuteronomy 17:19; this verse made me think of James 1:22. But I quoted 19-22 because it is good too. ;) Asterisks (*) and bold print are mine.
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, **because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. **Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
Do not merely listen to the Word and so deceive yourself. Do what it says. James 1:19-22
So then faith comes by hearing,
and hearing by the Word of God.
How sweet are Your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
How does having a daily Bible reading time, impact your life?
