Scripture: Proverbs 30:6 Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. (NKJV)
Nugget: I’ve found that there are many people who take God’s word from the Bible & turn the word to fit their own benefit. We’ve all known someone to do so! They can take scripture & turn it into something we’ve never heard before. Sometimes you wonder if you’re reading the same Bible they are!
We have to know God’s word for ourselves. We must study, read, gain knowledge, attend church & Bible Study, & show ourselves approved. This eliminates us taking God’s word out of context & adding to it (or hearing additions to it from others).
There’s nothing like knowing God & His word for yourself!
Quote: “We fail in our duty to study God's Word not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy.” -R.C. Sproul
