DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 25:1-30; Ezekiel 1:1-28; 2 Timothy 2:1-26

And some of them believed. Acts 17:4 , KJV
Many of them believed. Acts 17:12, KJV

Why some? Why many? The blessings of an honest examination of the Word of God is apparent. Those who heard Paul’s
message at Berea were open-minded and prepared to study the Scriptures. Many of them were persuaded by the truth and
turned to the Lord. If you have been biased against the Word of God, change your attitude. Read it fairly and allow the Spirit
to speak. He will reveal the truths they contain. You will be eternally blessed. —Garry W. Seale

Study it carefully, think of it prayerfully, Till in your heart its
precepts dwell. Slight not its history, ponder its mystery;
None can ever prize it too fondly or well. —Author Unknown
