Nehemiah 8:8. They read from the book of Gods law, explaining it and imparting insight. Thus the people gained understanding from what was read.

Sometimes we might feel pretty smug. We go to church, assembling with other believers. We look good, loyal, committed and obedient. The question is where is our mind and heart while we are in a worship service? When the Scripture is read do we really listen? Do we open our own Bibles and read along? When hymns are sung do we lift up our voice and sing to God? The Bible says sing praises with a loud voice. It doesn’t say it has to be on tune or sound good. When the sermon’s given do we really listen and take notes for further reflection? Let us choose to be fully present when we gather together. God used a mule to teach. He will teach us through anyone or anything is we are open and receptive.
