At 6 months old, the average baby weighs double what he or she did at birth. By the time a baby turns 1, its weight has tripled!
With all of that growing to do, babies keep a tight focus on getting enough to eat. Kids too. They need the right nourishment to develop and thrive, and they don’t willingly skip meals.
In the same way, God’s children need to eat spiritual food to grow and mature.
Reading and studying God’s Word is what feeds you. This sustenance goes hand in hand with prayer. These “spiritual meals” are how we spend time with God and get to know Him better. As you actively apply what you learn from the Word to your life, “you will be blessed by God in what you do” (James 1:25, Good News Translation).
Once you understand that the Bible is as vital to your spiritual life as food is to your body, it’s a lot easier to make it a priority.
Many people read the Bible first thing in the morning or at the end of their day. Pick a time that works for you, and set a reminder to spend 15 minutes reading. Choose a place where you aren’t distracted (including by your phone). After a couple of consistent weeks, you’ll ease into a treasured routine that you won’t want to skip.
Morning is my favorite time to read the Bible. If I start my day with God instead of news headlines or social feeds, it gives me the spiritual anchor I need.

Here are four ways to support your routine:
