Faith Action Item for Today – Open That Book

But Jesus told him “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” ~ Matthew 4:4

Are you reading the Holy Bible every day?  If not, make a point to start on one book of the Holy Bible and read through it in one week’s time.  A book like Romans is a good starting point as there are many vital lessons for life presented there by Paul.

Another idea is with Proverbs.  That book of the Old Testament has 31 chapters.  There are, of course, 31 days in most months. One chapter a day for one month.

Are the words from the “mouth of God” worth 5 to 10 minutes of your time each day?  Start today.
