Spell that for me.

     I am about to confess one of my weaknesses. I cannot spell.  I have even had people sending me notes about how I have spelled things wrong on this blog.
     My weakness really hit me hard today.  I spent the day teaching 5th Grade English. We learned about homonyms today.  You know the words that sound the same but have different meanings. I am the teacher that is standing there with the dictionary on her phone trying to work the worksheets.  I don't care about chilli and chilly. I am confident that I would not win the show "Are you smarter then a 5th Grader".
      Ok, I have to admit that if I would pay attention and study I would become a better speller. I have been trying to blame my inablity to spell on genetics. My daughter can't spell but my son can so I believe we are born with it; when in reality I just haven't made it a priority.
     As I thought about my day I realized that sometimes we are that way with God’s word.  We know it is there and that we are going to need to use it but we just don’t take the time to study it and find out what it really says.
     My challenge this week is for you to make a decision to set down and study the word and find out what God really has for you.

Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15
