Saturday I started a new plan to read the entire Bible in a year. I have attempted a plan like this in the past and usually reach an impasse in Leviticus. If I could only make it over the ritual and tabernacular details that are Leviticus! I know there is a lot of good stuff in there, you just have to be awake for it and that, I hate to admit, is my problem. So, in order to really read the Bible in a year, I have been in need of a plan that does not hinge on Leviticus in the beginning. Obviously, I will still need to read it, but it would be nice to be further up the trail for motivation's sake before I try to scale Everest.
Thankfully, my ESV Study Bible has just such the plan! It breaks your daily Bible readings into four sections: Psalms & Wisdom Literature, Pentateuch & the History of Israel, Chronicles & Prophets, and Gospels and Epistles. This way, I can read through Leviticus and still have some soothing Psalms or Proverbs to keep me going and motivated! :) So far I am really enjoying it!
