Bored by the Bible?

I had a conversation with a friend a few days ago.We're trying to decide what we should study together over the summer once we finish the book we're currently working through. She asked me if I ever get bored reading the Bible. You know, studying the same books again for a second time, third, or even more.

I paused for a moment, and thought, then confidently replied, "No."

How can you get bored with a book that isn't just a book -- it's the living word of God? How can you get tired of being shown truths by the Holy Spirit, truths that reflect not only the Lord but what he is doing in my heart, today? How can you run out of interest in the eternal?

I'm so much more than not bored. In fact, I'm falling more in love every day.
