My Soul Glorifies the Lord

It seems to me that regardless of how many times I read the Bible, I am struck anew with something every day. Something I’ve read before, maybe hundreds and hundreds of times.

I’ve raised my daughter to read her Bible every day, to seek God in it, to study it diligently, and to make it as much a part of her day as breathing. Last year she was having a discussion with a Pastor and told him that she reads her Bible on a daily basis. She wasn’t being smug or self-righteous, so imagine her shock when the Pastor rebuked her, telling her that daily Bible reading is legalistic.
