"All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God's will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage];"
[ 2 Timothy 3:16] Amplified Bible
The Word of God has been the source of creation. God depended on His word not only to create the universe, but also to deliver the world from sin to the path of righteousness.
Apostle Paul tells us what the verse does in one's life having accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord and personal Savior.
The Word of God is a manual for believers all over the World. It instructs believers to toe a certain line for the glory of Christ Jesus. But what do we see off late? A lot of people cannot find their bearing in Christ because of excessive taste for worldly gains and over indulgence in activities that God frowns upon.
To build ourselves in the Word of God, we must have time to study, meditate, practice and pray always.
Citing an instance, when we look at farmers, sometimes they do sharpen their blunt cutlasses to enable them work productively. Literally, the Word of God will sharpen us for effective duties when we build ourselves in His Word frequently.

O Lord thank you for this wonderful message. Teach us your ways continually so that we may work according to your will in Jesus' name, Amen.
