Study for love

I am taking a class that analyzes aspects of faith in a very detailed manner.  It’s very interesting, and actually helps me understand my faith in a deeper way.  However, in another class, I was told that you can become a scripture scholar and lose your faith.  When looking at aspects of faith – why we believe, what we believe, the history and meaning behind various aspects – it fails in its purpose unless we bring that back to prayer and our relationship.  I can analyze my relationship with my husband all day long, but if it doesn’t help me love him more, then it’s useless.  Study the Bible, study faith and religion, and then remember that the point is to learn how to love God more.  Then the fruits will be amazing.
