How often we read the Bible is not the issue .. the issue is whether we obey God's Word. To read and study the Bible and give mental assent only is useless. But, to read, study and obey demonstrates faith.

How can you obey God's Word if you don't read it regularly and keep his Word fresh in your heart and mind? I've read the bible in its entirety, but find I enjoy a daily reading to keep my mind fresh. A daily reading can be anything from 1 scripture verse to chapters. It amazes me that no matter how much I read the Word, the Lord uses it in my life with new meaning. I believe its critical to keep the Word fresh in your mind or you can easily falll prey to other people's views and opinions of the scriptures....instead of knowing them in your own heart and truly knowing the loving character of the Lord personally.

yes i've memorize some scriptures in the Bible. It all started when i was a kid. Our family have a morning and evening family worship and each lessons that we take we should memorize a verse first before dicussing it. That's why it help me a lot now in searching ounce again those scriptures that i've forgotten for a while. I've read the Bible on my spare time every evening.

I have some scriptures memorized because they come in handy when I'm down or utterly crazy. I read the Bible every week because it's food for the soul.

I don't have scripture memorized, but I do remember key points or scriptures when I need to. I have read the bible from front to back about three times. Now, I susbscribe to a daily bible podcast on iTunes, so I listen to it every weekday, at least. I even listen to back issues.

I read the Bible everyday in my devotion time. I memorize some but everyday I try to meditate on one verse after the other.

I read my scriptures daily. My goal this year is to read all the standard works in one year. So far I'm in Exodus in the Old Testament and 2 Nephi in the Book of Mormon. I don't really have any scriptures memorized but there are some that I know simply because I've heard them quoted often.

Not as much as I wish. I do try to read the Bible or listen to it on tape. I have some scripture memorized. Mostly from my younger years, although I've been working on memorizing some of Isaiah 58.
