I’m reading through Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life (Donald E Whitney) and read a story about a man who learned to read the Bible with his tongue! It really challenged me to hunger more for God’s Word!
In his book “The Wonders of the Word of God,” Evangelist Robert L. Sumner told of a man in Kansas City who was severely injured in an explosion. His face was badly disfigured, and he lost his eyesight as well as both hands. He was a brand-new Christian, and one of his greatest disappointments was that he could no longer read the Bible. Then he heard about a lady in England who read Braille with her lips. Hoping to do the same, he sent for some books of the Bible in Braille.But when the books arrived, he discovered to his great disappointment that the nerve endings in his lips had been too damaged by the explosion. One day, as he brought one of the Braille pages to his lips, his tongue happened to touch a few of the raised characters—and he could feel them! Like a flash he thought, “I can read the Bible using my tongue!” At the time Robert Sumner wrote his book in 1969, the man had “read” through the entire Bible four times!
If he can do that, can you discipline yourself to read the Bible?
