Tell Me What You Studied



          Starting with the first Tuesday in November, I began a study

time with my family. It’s notable because all my children are now

adults and three are living with me and my wife. Sometimes not

all of the children are home but the study goes on anyway. Right

now we are studying the book of Romans, per my wife’s request.

          This past Thursday, my daughter was gone at the time of

the study. What is interesting though is that she called after our

study was over and asked what I covered in the study that night.

My first reply sadly was that she should have been with us if she

wanted to know what the study was about. Her reply was

(and I am paraphrasing here) “Isn’t this a good time to study

too?” I had no reply to that. What could I say? God over and

over tells us to “…seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness;

and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

With similar instructions to Timothy, Paul writes that we should be

“…be urgent in season, out of season” (2 Timothy 4:2). My

mind was sent on doing something other than teaching God’s word.

I felt so ashamed of myself for thinking that way. My daughter has

taught me many things over the years not the least of which is the

importance of God’s word in our lives. When is not a good to

tell someone you love (and shouldn’t we love all?) about the

truth of God’s word? Don’t let yourself get like Martha and be

“cumbered about much serving”. If someone asks about the Bible

that is the best time to study with them.

In Christ, Steve Preston
