Part 4: Reading the Bible in a Year

“The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch
of 
scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it
because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are
obliged to act accordingly.” 

Søren Kierkegaard, “Provocations: spiritual writings of Kierkegaard, 1813-1855, was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, and social critic.

Hi, Everyone! I hope the last two months has gone well, and you are able to keep up with the daily Scripture reading. There is never a wrong time too read Scripture, but there is always a right time — the time is now. 

We are half way through the year, and I can hear someone say, “Well, it’s too late to start reading the year-long Scripture challenge.” WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!! There is no wrong time to start. 

If you are just now finding this blog (lfreetoblog.com), or you have been struggling to keep up — start now. Begin with this post – July 1st – and read from there. Once December 31, 2016 reading is done, keep going and read the first half-year of the Bible Challenge. It is never too late to start! So here’s to good reading for July and August.
