2 Timothy 2:15 - "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to
be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth."

New clothes are in the closet, and the books and backpacks are out and ready to go. Summer vacation is
over and it’s back to school! Weeks of summer pleasure gave young minds a chance to rest, but now it’s
back to work. It’s time to study again. There is one book that we should never get tired of studying and
learning from. That, of course, is The Holy Bible. When was the last time you really took the time to dig
in and study God’s Word? Did the busyness of summer cause you to slack off of your study of God’s
Word? Vacations? Travel? Kids at home? Extra outside work? No matter what the season, there are
plenty of things to distract you and keep you from studying, but it’s time to put away the excuses and
get into the Word. What are you waiting for? It’s time to study!

Precious Lord, Your Word is my source of strength and wisdom. Let me never be so unwise as to think
that I know enough of it. Let me never neglect studying it. Let me never stop loving it.
