Changing Our Reading Habits Can Transform Our Health

According to the writer of this article, changing our reading habits not only improves our knowledge base, but helps fight depression, makes us more confident, empathetic, and a better decision maker. Quoting from the article, "Reading for pleasure can help prevent conditions such as stress, depression, and dementia."

Knowing the above information, if we haven't already why not begin reading the greatest Book ever written — the Bible.

Reading the Bible will not only provide us with all of the above benefits (plus a whole lot more!), but will help us to align our thinking (see article) with our Creator's thinking (Isaiah 1:18).

And to top that off, it will take only twelve minutes a day to read the entire Bible in one year.

Beloved, is this really too much time to spend reading about God and His beneficial will for us? (cf. Deuteronomy 6:24-25; Deuteronomy 10:12-13).

Let’s prayerfully think about it, and then start planning a daily regimen of twelve minute Bible reading (Ephesians 3:1-4; Acts 17:11), asking God to open our eyes to His truth (Psalm 119:18; John 17:17).
