36. How do I learn to love the scriptures?

Sometimes reading the scriptures isn’t very enjoyable. I’m reading the Old Testament right now, and I’ve just finished 1 Chronicles. It gets repetitive and I don’t understand quite a lot of it.

But I enjoy it when I’m looking for verses and phrases that resonate with me and can help me in my life.

In the middle of genealogies and lists, I came across this verse:

Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.

1 Chronicles 28:20

I don’t like every single verse when I read the scriptures, but I come to love the scriptures when I search to find the single verse that can help me.
