Generally one of two attitudes keeps people from enjoying the spiritual feast that waits for them in the Bible. (1) Some say, “The Bible is too hard to understand,” and so they let it gather dust on the shelf. Get a copy of The Evangelical Standard Version which is in modern English and enjoy yourself luxuriating in the Word. (2) Other say, “The Bible is too simple. I learned all that in Sunday school.” Apparently you need to read it as an adult to find out all you didn’t learn. Give it a try. You’ll be blessed. Today’s devotional should help you enjoy the feast God has prepared for you. God bless you.

Psalm 119:130 (ESV)
The unfolding of your words gives light;
it imparts understanding to the simple
“What kind of a God would reveal his love and redemption in terms so technical and concepts so profound that only an elite corps of professional scholars could understand them? God does speak in primitive terms because he is addressing himself to primitives. At the same time, there is enough profundity contained in Scripture to keep the most astute and erudite scholars busily engaged in their theological inquiries for a lifetime.” [R. C. Sproul, Knowing Scripture, (Downers Grove, IL, InterVarsity Press, 1977), p. 16]
