Question of the Week #1

Happy New Year! It's resolution time for some, and anti-resolution time for others! I know not everyone likes making "resolutions" for the new year. Some prefer making goals--short term goals that are measurable and doable. But whether you're making short term goals or long term goals, chances are you've got some idea of what you want--what you would like--for the new year.

So this week's question is what are your goals (be they short term or long term) when it comes to reading the Bible?

I have a few goals. I want to read the Bible every day. I'd like to try to read it twice a day. But that isn't my discipline yet. Right now, I read the Bible at night because it's the time when I have more me-time, less distractions, more energy. (I know the thought of having more energy at night can be an odd one to some folks. But it's true. I'm NOT a morning person.) But I would like to get another dose of the Word in at some point in the day. If I can.

I would like to keep reading in my ESV Study Bible and my 1599 Geneva Bible. But both of those are very-long-term goals. I don't think I'll finish up either bible this year. I would like to maybe try to read The Narrated Bible (The Daily Bible) this year. It is NIV. It is chronological.

My goal is to read the Bible every day at least one or two chapters.

My goal is to read the Bible daily, a couple of chapters. Long term, I'l be reading the whole Bible, but I have no idea how long that will take.
