Not that I could introduce more round ups on this topic,
but to my senses it is useless to encourage people to read and use tricky approaches to gain such "mining".

The more you try to squeeze out of them the less enduring fun you have with them.
The more there is to be found, the less you can see to it.

It is like wanting to take out more oil of an engine, than there actually is in it.
What you need to do is change the engine design, and you can use up less oil.

The scriptures are designed to give us assistance for various problems of life,
and aid us in helping to come closer to a personal God, just "mining" knowledge will not do.

So it is not increased scripture reading and "mining",
you want to enjoy it, you need to increase problem related service and God-Distance demanding struggles and relating scriptures to it.

By the way the more assistance on scripture reading you get, the less investments you make.
Your desires count, not the program you posses to read them.It is personal !
Try it, you will see.
