Let us listen to what Paul has to say about the usefulness of the Scriptures and ask ourselves whether or not we are committed enough to knowing and living them in our daily lives. The Scripture is one of the wellsprings of revelation in the life of the Church (the other is Tradition). What are we doing to deepen our knowledge of them and so grow in our faith and understanding of God’s love for us?
2 Timothy 3:10-17
10 You have followed my teaching, way of life, purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra, persecutions that I endured. Yet from all these things the Lord delivered me. 12 In fact, all who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse, deceivers and deceived. 14 But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it, 15 and that from infancy you have known the sacred scriptures, which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
