The Spiritual Practice of Studying Scripture
While living in exile, God’s people didn’t have their land, their temple, or their
homes, but they did have Scripture. One of the unexpected ways God’s people grew spiritually
during this time of terrible disruption, was by grounding and rooting their lives in God’s Word like
never before. They become people of the book. As we seek to rebuild our broken lives and
world, perhaps God is calling us to anchor our lives once again in his powerful Word. This
week, following the example of Ezra, discover how God is inviting us to engage in the spiritual
practice of studying Scripture.
