A Progressive Work
An elementary truth almost lost in today's world, the progressive work of the Word (which is God):
(a) keep the scripture near you (proximity),
(b) til it impacts your speech (becomes your words),
(c) absorb it into your heart (impacts your values),
(d) so that you "may do it" (live it out).
Practice the progression and watch the mystery of scripture work its work in your life journey and bring blessing to others along the way.
"But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it."
Deuteronomy 30:14 KJV
