Make It Your Ambition To...

...wear out your Bible from use.

I'm not advocating book abuse. I believe we should treat our Bibles well.

But we ought to be in them so often that they take on distinctive character and patina. Mark them up with your notes. Create something tender and special that your children will be delighted to hold one day because it brings back warm memories of you.

Actually, that's just a side benefit.

The primary benefits come from interacting with the Lord of the Universe and the Master of your heart.
