Museum Bibles

[170 words]

The Bible is not a museum piece to be admired at a distance and dusted now and again. It is a treasure to be polished. It is a tool to be used. It is a light to be shined. It is a mirror to be viewed. It is a sword to be sharpened. It is a food to be digested. The poet worded it this way: “These hath God married, and no man shall part, dust on the Bible, and drought in the heart.”

It is best to have a specific time each day. Many find it easier to study in the morning (Psalm 88:13; Mark 1:35). God’s mercies “are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:23). Some like to study on their lunch hour (Psalm 55:17; Acts 10:9). Others are night owls who focus best at night while it is quiet (Psalm 119: 148). Experiment with different times to see what works best for you. The most important thing is not to own a “museum Bible.”
