Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 1 Corinthians 10:11 NASB
No one likes making mistakes. If there was knowledge beforehand that would help you to not make a mistake, wouldn’t you want it? I mean, why go through the problems that a mistake brings?
Paul says in 1 Corinthians that the story of the Israelites in the Old Testament serves as our example so we don’t make the same mistakes they did.
So then, it is important to read the Bible and know what the Bible says. This should be done daily!
This is just one benefit of reading the Bible. There are so many more!

Father, thank You for Your Word. Help me to know You more as I read it daily.
