As the new year is approaching many are considering turning a new leaf and resolving to do things differently in 2011. One of the best New year’s resolutions that one might choose is to read the Bible daily in the new year.
Several polls taken during the last year have unfortunately demonstrated that American Christians are somewhat illiterate when it comes to the Bible and particularly Biblical teachings.
One good way to reverse the trend is to set aside time to read the good book everyday. An excellent idea is to read through the whole Bible or at least the New Testament during 2011. There are a number of good programs to help you in the process.
One of the easiest ways to get it done is to get a ‘One Year Bible’, I’ve used one of these several times. The whole year is divided up into daily readings usually with a selection from the New Testament, the Old Testament, and from Psalms. You can even get it in your favorite version at the book store or at Amazon.
If you find that reading all of it in one year is maybe too much, then you could read just the New Testament and Psalm offerings for each day and then maybe save the Old Testament for the following year (or visa versa).
There are also a number of good plans available that allow you to use your regular Bible for the reading. Here’s a few plans online:
There are lots more Bible helps available just search online. If any of my readers have other Bible reading favorites or have found some other helpful sites and apps please let us know about them in a comment.
May God Bless you and yours during the new year.
