Read the Word, or You Will Shrink...

Yesterday my niece Raegan was doing a little practice preaching on Alaena. She was really getting into it too. She was going, "Baby Laena, the Word says" (and at this point she took the opened Bible in her hand and put it into Alaena's face), "the Word says if you don't read the Bible and pray YOU WILL SHRINK! That's what is says Baby Laena!" (And as she said shrink she brought her hand down low to the ground to represent her point.) Then she said, "The Word says if you read it and pray and you will GROW!" (And she brought her hand back up!)
One of her favorite songs right now is "Read Your Bible, Pray Every Day!" If your not familiar with the song it goes like this:

Read your Bible, pray every day, pray every day, pray every day,
Read your Bible pray every day and you'll grow, grow, grow
and you'll grow, grow, grow,
and you'll grow, grow, grow,
Read your Bible, pray every day, and you'll grow, grow grow

Neglect your Bible, forget to pray, forget to pray, forget to pray
Neglect your Bible, forget to pray and you'll shrink, shrink, shrink
and you'll shrink, shrink, shrink,
and you'll shrink, shrink, shrink,
Neglect your Bible, forget to pray and you'll shrink, shrink, shrink

Apparently, Raegan took the song as "WORD." But whether the Bible says we'll actually "Shrink" or not, it's so true. If we don't read the Word, we will shrink spiritually. Our spiritual muscles will become non-existent. So read your Bible folks (and don't make me come shake the WORD in your face and tell you that otherwise you're gonna shrink!!)
