Drink deeply and be filled

Scripture is like an endless stream of refreshing water cascading over a fall.

I’d finished the various weight machines that I’m using to strengthen my legs and thus ease my weary knee. Having been on the treadmill for 20 minutes I realized I was thirsty and chugged down half of my 500ml bottle.

What I should have been doing was drinking along the workout – or so they tell me.

This is, too often, the way we treat Scripture. We wait until we’re thirsty. When in fact, we should be drinking regularly.

Hear the Psalmist:

“but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” (Psalms‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

May we intentionally drink our fill so that we do not thirst.
