Two Ways to Slow Down When Reading the Bible

“Most of us read the Bible (and everything else) too fast, like sprinting through a rose garden. Let’s just get through the rose garden here. I saw all the roses, I really did. Well, you did. But really, did you?” (John Piper)

Here are two good methods that have helped me to slow down when reading the Bible:

1. Repetition, Emphasizing One Word at a Time

2. Color Themes

Another way to slow down when reading a passage of Scripture is to write out the passage and then highlight recurring (or very similar) words with the same color.
