From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15
Sponges—both the real kind from the ocean and the synthetic one in your sink—can hold vast amounts of water because of their countless series of complex labyrinths and dead-end tunnels and narrow channels. Water fills these tiny canals, which allows us to squeeze it out as needed.1
Mothers, grandmothers—and all the rest of us—should soak up Scripture like sponges because God wants even the slightest pressures upon us to yield an outpouring of His Word on others. In 2 Timothy 1:5, the apostle Paul commended Timothy’s grandmother, Lois, and his mother, Eunice, because their faith had provided a powerful model for young Timothy. In chapter 3, Paul rejoiced that Timothy had known the Holy Scriptures from childhood. These two women were saturated with Scripture, and Timothy lived in the overflow.
We need to saturate ourselves with God’s Word so the blessings will overflow on our children and all who come after us. Let’s be human sponges of the water of God’s Word!
Bible saturation is very different from the thin dribble of Bible that satisfies most of us. Amos R. Wells
