The more you read the Bible, the more you discover about God, yourself, and the people around you. The more you discover, the more your relationship with God, yourself, and the people around you improve.

You become more at peace with yourself and those around you. A win-win-win for everyone involved. So no matter what the reason, I’m glad you do!
