How To Read Through: The Bible

Reading through the Bible is hard. It’s starts great, then you get like half way through Exodus and it can get a little boring. Powering through gets you to Leviticus with its sacrifices, then Numbers (title is self explanatory). Finally you reach Deuteronomy and it repeats the last three books… What!?! Oh, and once you’ve finished that you are only five books in.

I struggled with this, because I’m impatient. A couple of deep, but boring chapters with more to come and I want to say, “That’s enough of this for today” and then tomorrow will come and it’s “More deep but boring, one chapter is enough.” and the day after I’ll just put it off.

So how did I get over this.

Easy.

I started reading the Bible differently. I took the Bible and decided on four large sections, The Pentateuch, Joshua-Psalms, Proverbs-Malachi, and the New Testament, and I read a chapter or twenty verses from each section every day.

I’ve considered changing it so that Psalms and Proverbs are there own section, but I haven’t gotten around two it yet.
