Quotable: Sproul on why we don’t study the Bible

Sproul doesn’t sugarcoat it . . .

Here then, is the real problem of our negligence. We fail in our duty to study God‘s word not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not lack of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy.”

Sproul, Knowing Scripture, 17. Cited in Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines, 39.
