30 Jan 2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

The Word of God is used for discipling us in our lives. We have our heavenly parents who discipline us when we need it, because they love us. It is the same with God. His word is used to teach, rebuke, and train for righteousness, as this verse describes. We often read the Bible and think it is a bunch of rules, and times that we do not understand. The Bible is the only book that relates to each culture and generation. We seek the Word of God as direction for our lives. Understand that the Word of God is here to help you and we are privileged to live in America where we can read it without be persecuted.
