Perusing Scripture

St. Isaac the Syrian offers us reasons to study Scripture daily:

Meditation on the scriptures teaches the soul the discourse with God.

Without the perusal of holy scriptures, the mind can never approach God.

The gate through which man finds access to wisdom is meditation on the scriptures.

(Orthodox Prayer Life: The Interior Way, Matthew the Poor, p. 52).
