I always feel that a portion of Scripture like this can in many ways be compared with food. There are some people who bolt their food. They get something out of it, of course they are getting their calories, but they are missing the enjoyment of the flavor and aroma. Many people are like that with the Scriptures. They rush through the passage; they have done it, they think, but oh, what they have missed.
So I propose to chew this with you, and to keep it in our mouths a good time before we swallow it. Do not miss the pleasure of savoring the Scripture. Masticate it thoroughly, break it up, and you will find that there are things there that you never imagined. – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 13, pp. 208-209
