The Word Speaks

For a long time, I've been reading the Bible in the morning while I'm eating breakfast and/or drinking a cup of coffee. So lately, since Daniel's right there with me, I've been reading it out loud. One, it's including him in what I'm doing and two, I'm speaking the Word over him and into him, with a little commentary along the way. But the unexpected blessing is how much more deeply the Word speaks to me and how much more I understand when I see it, speak it and hear it.

What an awesome thing to teach Daniel. That's what it's about right there. Not only is he getting the "practical" benefits of hearing you read and learning language so early, but he is getting spiritual benefits as well. And so neat that God's Word is speaking even more deeply to you through this act. Wow. So cool. Thanks for sharing!
