Where to Start

You may be interested in starting a reading program for the year in the Bible.  Good Idea.  It is not a good idea to start at the beginning and work your way through, especially if you have not read through the Bible previously.  You will get stuck in Leviticus.  If somehow you make it through there Numbers will do you in.
If you are going to start reading the Bible this year, 1 John is a good place to dive in.
If you and your kids want to start reading together, might I suggest 1 John?  As you read through the book underline the word “know.”  Let me know what you see.

  1. I've learned that the key to starting people in the Bible is selecting a book that relates to their current emotional state. What are they facing in life? What are they excited about / afraid of? If I select a book filled with people like themselves, it's easier for them to hear the Holy Spirit speaking to them -- and they want to come back for more. It's no easy task, but it always pays dividends.

  2. I couldn't agree more. I'm in Jeremiah for that reason!
