Daily Bible Reading
We often start a new project with the intent to complete it. This is no different from studying the Bible. But our busy schedule keeps us from doing it. If we can break it down into these segments throughout the day, we’ll accomplish our goals.
Prior to breakfast, you could in fact read just a verse or two in a few minutes. Re-read again for a better understanding. So many times Matthew is quoted. Here’s what he said: Then shall he answer them saying, “Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye have not done it to one of these least, neither have ye done it to me. “Matthew 25:45
Coffee Breaks At Work
Since breaks at work are usually set, you can find a quiet place and read another couple of verses and reflect on your readings. That should not take more than 5 minutes to do. As you become accustomed to your reading plan, you will be able to add more verses to your daily plan. If you get two coffee breaks at work then you will be able to add another reading time to your schedule.
Lunch Time Reading
As with coffee breaks, lunch times are also set. Again, you can read another two or three verses. Remember that as you become more familiar with your reading plan, you will add more verses to you reading pace.
Night Time Reading
Night time is the best time for reading the bible. Note taking helps to retain what you have read, because you will now interpret your understanding to the words. Visualize the story that Jesus is telling to His followers – you. Writing your understanding of the words will help you to reflect on how you can use these teachings to make your life more meaningful and complete.
Reflect on these words from Mark 10:23-25: And Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How difficult it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
With Bible reading plans, you are now able to schedule your reading times thereby you will benefit more. Very soon, this will become a habit and you will accomplish your goals in the time you scheduled.
As you ponder the words that you are reading, you may want to have some background gospel music to set the right tone.
