1/10/15: Everybody Loves Profit
Five years ago, I challenged all my blog readers to read through the Bible in the year. I’d like to issue that challenge again. There’s a reading plan right on your computer or internet-enabled cell phone. Just go to www.OneYearBibleOnline.com. Find January and the daily readings will be outlined for you. You can choose between two plans. Yo could read the Bible through in order, the way I do it. With this plan, you will read a selection from the Old Testament, a selection from the New Testament, some verses from Psalms, and some verses from Proverbs. The second plan is a chronological reading; in other words, the plan takes you through the Bible reading from the oldest writings to the newest ones.
Choose one of the plans. If you haven’t yet started, start today. If you double up by reading one set of readings in the morning and one set of readings at night, by January 20th, you will be caught up. Or if you prefer, just start with today’s date and don’t worry about the selections you have not yet read. You can catch up on those whenever you’d like.
When the Bible speaks of itself, it says, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (Second Timothy 3:16, emphasis added). Everybody loves profit, so here’s a definite promise of prosperity. All Scripture is profitable.
Take time daily to hear from God; He takes time for you whenever you call.
