I have noticed in reading Holy Scripture that my trend of thought is
sidetracked often by a verse that changes
direction of my study goal. It is sort of like a detour in the road. I am headed in the direction I had chosen, but must
alter my destination first to see where the detour takes me. I call them 'detour verses'. I was 'detoured' by another
trend of thought that calls for study. I have noticed that those 'detour verses' seem to be more abundant in
subsequent passes through Scripture, verses with a special meaning that did not catch my attention in previous passes.
Holy Scripture is deep and at times I am paddling on the surface and miss the deeper meanings.
As I have said before in a previous writing, Holy Scripture should be read slowly and each verse should be pondered upon.
You cannot glean the beauty of Holy Scripture if you simply read it as you would a novel.
