I love to read. I read every night. Novels. Spiritual works. Icon books. All good stuff (mostly).
Our pastor had a suggestion during his homily last week. The Bible is composed of books. Why not read just one of them, amongs the other books? Not all of it. Just one. Hmmm.
I had once decided to read the entire Bible from start to finish, but eventually stopped before even getting 1/3 of the way through. It was a bit daunting. To think of the Bible not as a whole but as books, such a simple and obvious way to see it as manageable parts, that makes it doable. Well, Duh, as my kids might say. It’s been divided into books, like, forever . . .
I look forward to the pastor’s challenge, and will begin to read, to get to know my God.
