Sharpening with a Bible

Page 3 of Richard Foster’s book Life with God says,

The average “Bible consumer,” publishing research tells us, owns nine Bibles and is looking for more. This is mute but powerful testimony to a deep and abiding sense of lack – a sense that we have not really achieved a grasp of the Bible that is adequate to our needs.

I know this longing.

A better form factor will make my Bible easier to read. Or maybe I need a different translation.

This longing is also familiar in sharpening equipment. My edges will be sharper if I just buy X.

Some things can only be achieved through practice. Faith takes practice. Sharpening takes practice.
