Dietrich Bonhoeffer on Personal Devotions

The Word of Scripture should never stop sounding in your ears ad working in you all day long, just like the words of someone you love.  And just as you do not analyze the words of someone you love, but accept them as they are said to you, accept the Word of Scripture and ponder it in your heart, as Mary did.  That is all…Do not ask, ‘How shall I pass this one?’ but “What does it say to me?’  Then ponder this word long in your heart until it has gone right into you and taken possession of you.
