One of my greatest mistakes in terms of Bible study as it relates to social media is reading the Bible in order to have something to post. When a daily post becomes my motivation – my heart is not in the right place.
The same is true when I am working on a book, magazine article, or even a message for my ladies Bible study. The study of Scripture becomes a means to an end and that, my friends, isn’t good.
So, I thought I would share my secret for keeping the main thing the main thing in my heart.
I am always reading something that isn’t for sharing. Whether it’s a daily devotion or a certain book of the Bible separate from what I may be working through online. There has to be something that is just Jesus and me.
Think about it. If I am only being fed what I am turning around and offering to others – I will end up empty.
So, for those of us who love to share our Bible insights online or via group studies, let’s not forsake the one-on-one time when it’s just Jesus and us. ❤️
