This chapter, of course, contains the central motivation for our entire Bible-reading plan as a church. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
These days, we don’t want anyone to breathe on us. In fact, our government is mandating that people in public spaces don’t get close enough to breathe on each other. Your breath carries germs, they say. Please keep it to yourself!
And we wear masks. For a while I carried the same worn out mask in my pocket, and I would dig it out and put it on as I walked into the grocery store. It started to smell bad. No wonder! I had been breathing on it again and again. Some funky stuff comes out of our mouths, and we oftentimes don’t even notice!
All Scripture is breathed out by God. Here is a something that might also carry something that could “infect” a person.
Do you want God to breathe on you?
Please keep reading your Bibles. I am convinced that what we are doing – diving into God’s Word every day – can transform our lives for the better.
