At the beginning of the year, I made a commitment to reading my Bible through in a year’s time. For the first part of the year, I made really good progress.
Then, with all of our moves, and living with another family for a month, I got behind somewhat. I’ve been trying to catch up but am not as far as I’d like to be to finish by the end of the year.
My solution was to go to Google and to look up various reading plans to see if I could find one that might give me an indication of how much I needed to read each day to be able to finish by the end of the year. One website I found intrigued me. It listed the daily requirements to read the Bible through in a year, 6 months, 4 months, 3 months, 2 months, and even the number of pages required to read the Bible through in 1 month.
That was so motivating for me. It was so neat to see how it breaks down to read the Bible through in shorter and shorter periods of time. It’s also convicting to me to see that reading just 20 pages a day will let you read through the Bible in 90 days. How come I can sit down with other books and read them cover to cover in a couple of hours, yet reading just 20 pages a day of my Bible seems like such a large task?
This is something I will be praying about. I’d like to set a personal goal for myself to read the Bible through in a shorter period of time than I’ve done before. . .
How to Read your Bible is the website that I found. I can’t guarantee the content of the rest of the site; use discretion as you usually would when reading a website you’re not familiar with.
