How do you measure the life of a man? I am not sure, however if you want to to live a life that pleases and glorify God you must read His Word. It is filled with life principles and instructions. Warning! You may be convicted once you read it, and it may create a change within you, but you will never know unless you look at the man in the mirror through the Word of God.
Finally, be careful if you were reading Scriptures and stopped, because you don’t just stay still, but you may actually start drifting away from God.
