The first day of Bible reading was amazing! We started with everyone on our small team reading 2 chapters each. Then came the longer ‘turns’ of one hour at a time. We completed Genesis and Job. There is so much treasure in that precious Book!
I have ‘read through’ the Bible many times, but reading it out loud is quite different. Try Genesis Chapter 10, for example. This author leaves Dr. Seuss in the dust!
- Starting with the Creation story, I was reminded again that “God saw that it was good.” All of His creation: good and very good.
- Then the personal stories of those who walked with God: Noah, Job, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. People with ‘issues,’ weaknesses – just like us even though so long ago.
- If you have ever doubted God’s power, please read Job 38 – 39. If you have not, just read it anyway!
- I love the story of Joseph, and selfishly read all those 15 chapters myself. <:)
We ended the day with a shortfall of 6 chapters that need to be ‘made up’ today, but I am confident that we’ll make the schedule work.
