Confession: I am a recovering Bible skimmer. You know how Bible skimming works right?
Reach a long list of names in the Bible—quickly skim the list and move on.
Come across a familiar story—skim over.
Hard to understand prophecies? Yep, skim those too. (Sorry Zechariah, I’m just not sure what you are talking about).
My skimming habits went unchecked until I listened to a “drive through the Bible” study series. As the pastor discussed the long lists of names, familiar stories, and hard to understand sections, I gained many new insights and realized even with years of reading my Bible and attending church, I still had a lot to learn.
Determined to stop skimming and dig in deep, I implemented different study methods and tools for Bible study. Not only has my learning significantly increased since applying these techniques, but my love for God’s word continues to grow every day.
