This is the time of year where many christians pursue the goal of reading the Bible through in a year. I have grown up in a christian home and have been challenged many times to do this such thing. It has been a challenge that I, sorry to say, have never conquered.
I have read through Genesis countless times, but this year it stops. It doesn’t stop because I am going to read the whole Bible this year. See, I started a new reading plan last year. It is a year reading plan, but being a slacker, didn’t make it through. In fact I only made it half way through. So this year I determined I was not going to start over again. I don’t want to read Genesis again and possibly miss Revelation. So I am pushing forward. I have checked the boxes through half the readings and I am going to keep going. There is no stopping me. I will continue to plow through I Chronicles. The son of… was the son of…. was the son of…. And maybe by this time next year I will be able to say…it is finished. I will have finally read all of God’s Word.
Do you plan to read the Bible through this year?
