Many years ago Socrates said, “Thou shouldest eat to live, not live to eat.” Socrates was pointing out that the most important aspect of food is ultimately the nutrition it provides. Did you know the Bible points out nutritional advice in relation to reading it? 1 Peter 2:2 reads, “as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby”. The spiritual nutritional fact pointed out here is a Bible does not benefit a person unless the person reads it. It is like buying a jug a milk and putting it in your fridge. It is of absolutely no nutritional value to you personally, unless you take that milk out of the fridge and drink it. A Bible only benefits you if you read it.
