As we gear up for this new year, resolutions and commitments abound, all well meaning, almost none of which will persist past MLK weekend. But as you think about the coming year, consider installing a daily Bible reading habit to your routine. Why? I’m glad you asked, because tucked away in a short but famous verse from the Apostle Paul are three reasons.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
A word to the wise: Don’t set out to memorize the whole Bible by Easter. It’s about the habit, engaged over a long period of time, that will bring about the most profit. So start today. You can sign up for The Daily Read, Creekside’s daily Bible reading plan. Consider downloading an app called Dwell if you’d prefer an audio Bible. Take your commute, your time at the gym, the first moments of the morning or the last moments at night to be in God’s Word.
