I ask a lot of questions. I ask questions of people. I ask questions of the things I read. I ask questions of God. And I learn best when I ask questions of Scripture.
These 5 questions below are questions that Tim Keller asks of Scripture when he is studying. I found them helpful enough that I plan to try to incorporate them into my morning disciplines and study time:
- How can I praise him?
- How can I confess my sins on the basis of this text?
- If this is really true, what wrong behavior, what harmful emotions or false attitudes result in me when I forget this? Every problem is because you have forgotten something. What problems are you facing?
- What should I be aspiring to do on the basis of this text?
- Why are you telling me this today.
