12 things to do with scripture

Ever wonder what else you can do when reading a verse or chapter of the Bible?
Here are twelve things to get you started!

Look up key words (even if you think you know the meaning)
Ask the 5 W's and an H: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How
Summarize the text in one sentence or less
Transcribe the passage
Add a title to each page you've read in your Bible
Rewrite in your own words (paraphrase, rewrite for a child to understand, highlight or bold different sections to make them stand out)
Make an application from it. How can you apply it to your life?
Rewrite the passage, organizing it by main points or lists.
Pray through the text.
Freewrite about the verse for a set amount of time. Don't stop for that entire time. If you don't know what else to write, rewrite what you wrote before and keep going!
Doodle a picture of the main ideas.
