Don't study God's word to get it over with, study it to expand your knowledge of our savior.
Knowledge of the Bible is so vital to our spiritual growth, that if we don't study his word we will become spiritually hungry and we will not grow. Also, we must not study it to get it to over with so that we can get on with something else, but we must be completely concentrated when we study it.
I have to admit that I often find myself speeding through my morning devotions so that I can get to something else. And this is not how I'm going to advance spiritually. That "something else" should not be more important than studying God's word.
In "The Lord's Prayer" it asks God to "Give us this Day, our Daily Bread." What does he mean by this? I think it means that were not just asking God to give us our physical food but our spiritual food also, so that we will not become physically or spiritually hungry.
