I don't do April Fool's Day, so sorry to disappoint. Nothing funny or clever here this morning!
It's hard to believe 2014 is already a quarter over, but I am looking forward to this month for several reasons including but not limited to:
- It's my birthday month.
- I'm going to become a legit aunt this month.
- It's getting warm and that means spring.
- April showers bring May flowers.
- I like flowers.
- I've decided to read the whole New Testament this month.
I realize it's not such a huge feat, but I'm really looking forward to it. My Bible reading has been lacking focus for the past couple months, so I decided to do something to kick start me into a better routine.
There are 260 chapters in the New Testament, so I'm reading 9 chapters each day except Sundays when I'll read 7. That will leave me with only 7 chapters on the last day of April, too.
Today's chapters (Matthew 1-9) were full of rich teaching (This section includes the sermon on the mount), and this was one of the verses that stood out most to me.
I'd love to hear about how you like to read the Bible and if you have some kind of plan that you use. Would you share your ideas with me? I have a kind of short attention span; I like to try different things, so I'd love your suggestions!
Bring on the April showers in anticipation of May's flowers!
