We meditate because we are Christians. Therefore, every day in which we do not penetrate more deeply into the knowledge of God’s Word in Holy Scripture is a lost day for us. We can only move forward with certainty upon the firm ground of the Word of God. And, as a Christian, we learn to know the Holy Scripture in no other way than by hearing the word preached and by prayerful meditation.

-from Meditating on the Word, pg. 22
