What an excellent idea. I know that I tend to think of what I read for several days — I’m over halfway through my initial reading of the book. Then I am ready to read a new chapter.
Reading a chapter a day is too fast for me sometimes............or am I just “slow”? LOL — teasing myself.
**Everyone, therefore, must guard against temptation and must watch in prayer lest the devil, who never sleeps but goes about seeking whom he may devour, find occasion to deceive him. **
The initial warning from aKempis.
Like my mother and now my wife remind me, eat slowly, chew your food and it will digest better and you will get all the nourishment out of every bite. That’s Kempis and Augustine’s Confession. I read one passage, like you are posting, and then carry a amall note book to write. It works the same with portions of scripture.
