Haven’t you read in the Scriptures what David did when he and his companions were hungry?” (Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭3‬ NLT)

I sat in the meeting with my Pastor just shaking my head. He informed me, with a smirk, that a woman had complained about me. Nothing new, some folks just can’t be pleased, particularly when they believe they could do it better because they’ve sat in a pew for 40 years. But when you make a biblical accusation, shouldn’t it at least be in the Bible?!

All of us deal with some level of biblical ignorance, especially in regards to very deep, specific issues. But we’ll never please God if our main learnings stem from how we feel or what we’ve heard others say. To know God means to be in His word. Period. To use any other method to know God is unwise when the Bible is so accessible and time-tested.

My reputation wound up being safe. Apparently her Bible study material included the National Enquirer. Ask God to help you fall in love with His words. In them is your hope, your work, and even your destiny! You are loved! Study on!
