I always want to read more of my Bible; I want to know God better and feel it’s right to do so, but in everyday life, time to sit and read is a rare thing.
I start these big study guides or reading plans and never manage a month. Something stops me one day and then I get out of routine.
I figured some Bible was better than none, so I began by getting a verse of the day to my email from Biblegateway.com 🙂 I highly recommend doing that, it’s just a great reminder each day that God is with you (even when you’re reading emails) and some of the verses really make you stop and think.
I decided recently I need baby steps in Bible study, just like with my weight and savings. So rather than say I’m going to read x number of books by this date, I’ve set myself a single chapter a day. That’s achievable, even at bedtime…also, if I want to read on I can and I’m not out-of-sync with any daily plan or whatever.
It’s really straightforward, it’s doable and I can build on it.
Just thought I’d share in case you want to try it too.
Enjoy your Sunday!
