Sometimes the smallest variation can make a huge difference to your overall experience of something (like when you add a little too much salt to your soup and ruin your whole meal).

How Just One Minute in the Word Can Make a Huge Difference in Your Day
You may not always have gobs and gobs of time to read the Bible every day. But let me share how even just one little minute reading your Bible can make a big difference in your day.
Consider the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail.
Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife, whose husband had passed away only the day before.
When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint. Hearing the scream, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the computer screen:
Just checked in. Everything is prepared for your arrival tomorrow.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!
The absence of just one little thing can make a big difference, can’t it?! So can the addition of one little thing. My friend was telling me how she didn’t have much time the other morning to read her Bible. She only had a minute. So she took one minute in the Word. That’s all it took. That one little minute set her day up – the right way.
She shared how one tiny bite of the Word is like a tiny bite of food. Think about it, even just a small bite of food contributes to our well-being. It nourishes. It tastes good. It delivers vitamins to our body. The same happens with just one bite of scripture.
God’s Word is so powerful that even just one tiny bite has value. It’s nutrition-packed! So the next time you’re tempted to beat yourself up because you don’t have time to read a whole section or a whole chapter in your Bible. Don’t! Just take a bite.
That one little bite can encourage you, lift you up, set you up, and keep you going. Just one word. Sometimes that’s all it takes.
Here are a few ideas on how to sneak in a bite of the Word:
- If you have one minute to spare before you get to work, grab your smart phone
and grab a bite. (YouVersion Bible app is my favorite Smartphone app.)
- Got a pocket Bible? Stash it in your purse, briefcase, or backpack before you head out the door.
Then you will be prepared to take advantage of a break in your day when you can munch on the Word.
- Have a few minutes while your waiting in line picking the kids up? Grab a bite.
- Waiting on your next appointment, your doctor, or in line at the grocery store? Grab a bite.
- Standing over the stove cooking dinner? Grab a bite before you grab a bite!
- If all else fails, and you’ve found yourself at the end of the day ready to plop into bed and you
still haven’t had a bite of scripture that day…take just 60 seconds and grab a bite!
One bite is better than no bite at all. Even just one tiny bite of the Bible will do your body good!
Anywhere. Anytime. Grab a bite of scripture.
How has just one tiny bite of your Bible make a difference in your day? What are some ways you can come up with to sneak in a bite of scripture? Let us know in the comment section!
