This year I decided to do a “read through the Bible in a year” program. So far we have gone through the entire New Testament, and last month began the journey into the Old Testament. I joined a group on MeWe so we hold each other accountable and make it more likely that we will stick to it. What I love about the plan being used in the group is that we follow each book from start to finish before going on to the next. Right now we are in the book of Job (pronounced Yobe in Hebrew) because we are following a chronological order. What I like to do is seek out other sources after reading a passage to see what other people have found in reading the text. It can lead to new insights or simply lend a fresh perspective on something that I’ve read so often that I skim over it too quickly and lose some of the wonder of what’s there fresh for the finding today.
Learning is a never ending process, an eternal quest for us who are saved by the blood of Christ. 😊
One of the gems I came across today:
Job 34:2-4“Hear my words, you wise men, and give ear to me, you who know;
for the ear tests words as the palate tastes food.
Let us choose what is right; let us know among ourselves what is good.
