If you are hungry, reading a recipe from a cookbook won’t fill you up.
You could read one recipe from a cookbook every day, or even read the whole thing in a year, but if you never eat, you will die.
So, if you don’t want to die, you will need to read and follow the recipe. But even more than that you will need to cook the food, serve it, sit down at the table, take a bite, and then chew that bite until it can be swallowed and digested.
Then you take another bite.
You’ll never read in the Bible that you should read the Bible.
