Today is New Year’s Day. 2015 is gone and we begin a brand new year. As we do, many people will make resolutions. We will resolve to lose weight, get in shape, get our finances in order, spend more time with the kids, etc.. etc..
I want to encourage you to read through the Bible in 2016. It will take you, maybe, thirty minutes a day to do it but it will be a great investment of time. There is a website that I use, www.oneyearbibleonline.com, that will provide you with readings. Each day, there is an Old Testament reading, a New Testament reading, a reading from Psalms and Proverbs.
You may say, “I don’t have the time.” Yes you do… you MAKE the time. You stop doing something you are doing and invest thirty minutes in Bible reading. It will do much more for you than some of the stupid television shows we watch.
Psalm 1:1-3 describes a Godly man. The Psalmist says of the Godly man… “Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.”
