…because all the people hung on his words. (verse 48b)
Have you ever been in love? Did you think that person was the smartest, cleverest, most interesting person you had ever known? Did you hang on every word he or she said? You just couldn’t get enough, could you?
That’s how the people responded to Jesus when he was teaching in the temple. And that’s how I want to respond every time I read God’s Word.
I don’t want my quiet time to be just another thing on my daily to-do list. I don’t want to read with my mind on something else. Every time I open these precious pages I want to sit at Jesus’ feet and hang on every word.
I love Him! And I just can’t get enough!
