Making Time For A Great Bible Study
In this world everything is conveniently prepared for us. We
have every form of equipment to shorten the time span to get stuff done. But
yet we find ourselves in a situation where we are just going and going everyday
with so much different things to do, that sometime 24 hours is not even enough
time to get everything done.

proper bible study?
But time is important.
You have to prepare or make time for bible study. Without
making the time this Desire is just that, a desire. We wont be able to have a
bible study with just desire alone. Put away some time in your schedule to
actually sit down and have a bible study.
So in 24 hours you might be doing a lot of different
activities and if you don’t be careful the next day the same 24 hours will be
taken up again. And it will just go on and on and every day you’ll be having a

made the time to have one.
