I enjoy it when I read encouraging things, when people compliment me and when everything is pleasurable and light.
But I realised again this morning that the scriptures are not to be taken lightly. In 2 Timothy 3:16 I read that the scriptures ‘are useful for teaching, rebuking, correct and training.’ That sounds like heavy stuff. God will not be patting me on the back, He will be treating me seriously and sorting me out. I’d better get down to listening to what He has to say.
