Understanding the Word of God

Do you always understand what you read in the Scriptures? My guess is that every person does not understand something. However, do not feel bad or discouraged about it, for after Jesus used an illustration about sheep and a shepherd, John wrote, “Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them” (John 10:6).
That would have included even the men who would become apostles, some of whom wrote Scripture for us that we sometimes do not understand.
So, do not give up, but continue to read and to meditate on the writings of the Bible and you shall gain much understanding through the years.
