Accepting delayed gratification

When you are reading one of the great theological books of all time, you will benefit the most if you can be patient and wait for results.



Our modern-day society prizes instant results. We want it, and we want it NOW. If our desired results do not arrive quickly, we tend to quit.

To read Systematic Theology, though, we need to be willing to accept delayed gratification.

We might need to read for quite a few pages before we get that one great insight. At times, it can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. But it is very much worth it. That one great insight might change our whole world.
