Commitment and Guilt – those reading plans

shipwreck.2

New Years.

Yes it seems like a good idea to make a great plan.

Read through the Bible in a year.  However, we tend to shipwreck somewhere between Leviticus and Numbers.

I have a plan to read a chapter of the New Testament and a Psalm in my Spanish/English Bible.

Yet I have already fallen off the wagon.

Alas, I have experience with commitment and guilt.

Here is my advice

  • Avoid over eager plans.
  • Avoid plans with boxes to check off.  All those un-checks stare ate your with outstretched fingers of accusation. Who needs it.  Just read the next chapter whenever you do get to it.
  • The Sabbath is God’s idea, so build in some days without Bible Reading work in it.
  • Remember the point is to learn and internalize.
  • If you are going to try to read the whole Bible, try a plan that mixes OT and NT and a Psalm each day is nice.
  • Reading a genealogy is usually a matter of skimming (but not always as Matthew 1 attests).
  • Reading a parable or proverbs requires that you stop reading and think it over.
  • You did not fail if you fell a few chapters short; think of what you did read.
  • Next year will come soon enough.
