For what were the Bereans commended?


"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of
mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so." Acts 17: 11.
Note-"If God's Word were studied as it should be," says a modern Bible student, "men would have a
breadth of mind, a nobility of character, and a stability of purpose that are rarely seen in these times. But
there is little benefit derived from a hasty reading of the Scriptures. One may read the whole Bible through,
and yet fail to see its beauty or comprehend its deep and hidden meaning. One passage studied until its
significance is clear to the mind and its relation to the plan of salvation is evident, is of more value than the
perusal of many chapters with no definite in view, and no positive instruction gained."
