Last year my friend read the whole Bible, gleaning much benefit from just digesting the whole thing. here is what she posted on Facebook:
I encouraged her to read through chronologically this time, and asked if we could kind of read along together. She liked that idea, and so did her sister.
These days we live hundreds of miles apart from each other, but we can still spur one another on to love and good deeds. Now they are probably all caught up, while I bogged down on Job and a Christmas trip. But I am keeping in site that the goal is not to just do my spiritual check-offs, but to grow closer to God.
Some reading-through resources, chronological and otherwise :
My friend found this chronological listing. It differs somewhat from my Daily Bible in Chronological Order. I am following her list this time. Much of the time, I am reading from The Message, online at Bible Gateway.com. Bible Gateway also has a few read-through-the-Bible plans. Some of the time, I am reading with my actual Bible, curled up on the sofa, usually with a cup of coffee. (OK - now it is almost 11 p.m. and I want a cup of coffee.)
My cousins, both young moms with young children, are encouraging each other. They shared this link via Facebook: The Hardest Thing to do is Open Your Bible. In that article, Molly Piper refers to another article, Bible Reading Program for Slackers& Shirkers. I appreciate these ladies and their honesty.
