In-Flight Safety

It seems like everyone dreads the safety films when they’re on an airplane. Over the years, most folks have seen enough of these to give the demonstrations themselves. But that doesn’t make the message any less important. Likewise, bringing up the subject of Bible reading and study habits can cause a lot of church folks to roll their eyes.

In the safety films we’re told to put on our own oxygen mask before trying to help someone else with theirs. That’s true for Bible study too. You’ve got to be well-fed and nourished on God’s Word before you try to give “oxygen” to others. You can’t give away what you don’t have!

Here’s a diet that is sure to fail: Eat just one meal a week, on Sunday mornings from 10:45 to noon!

Deuteronomy 8:3b "Understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord."

Journal Suggestions:

Interview one of your spiritual mentors about their Bible study habits, and then write about the new habits they've inspired you to try.

Recall a valuable lesson you learned as the result of seriously digging deep into the Word of God.
