Returning a profit

My family and I try to do a devotion each night. We have started a new devotion that provides a verse to memorize.  This past week's scripture was 2 Timothy 3:16-17,  "All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."

I thought to myself, does my life return a profitable dividend for Christ's investment? Am I becoming the disciple He wants me to be? Am I fulfilling the Great Commission? Do I practice the two Great Commands? 

I must return the investment. I must intentionally devote time to reading the Bible and meditating on its message. Pray before your start studying.  The Holy Spirit will guide you. It will  help you understand and remember the scripture message. Spend time in His word. Let God reach you so you can reach others.

I hope you take the step necessary to begin. Do not get off track!  The path may be harder to find.
