|My oldest son Titus, showing Dad how it's done.|
So, how are you doing on this year's bible reading plan? Up to date or falling behind?
I'm hanging in there. I have encountered one difficulty though. I know for it to be done correctly, each day's reading should be read, (wait for it) each day. I tend to let it go a few days at a time (hey, I'm busy) and then try to catch up all at once. I know. The problem isn't the schedule it's me keeping it, but here's what I run into with this approach. I then get so intent on catching up, I rush to get through it all. This in turn defeats the whole purpose behind reading the Bible in the first place.
What do I gain in reading for the sake of finishing?
I end up making an idol of the schedule, while neglecting the scripture.
So, who should I blame, the schedule or my lack of discipline?
