Beyond Reading

I have quite a few books on my shelf about eating and exercising properly. I subscribe to a magazine that has all kinds of articles about diet and workouts. I enjoy reading and about fitness and saving some of the better ideas to review later. However, all of my reading and studying would be worthless if I didn’t actually put that knowledge to use. If I don’t eat properly and exercise regularly, all of my reading would be for nothing.

The same holds true for reading the Bible. If we don’t put into practice what we learn from Scripture, we might as well have not read it at all.

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”—James 1:22.
