I’ve always wondered why people would read through the Bible. It’s such a big book, and I really figured, why not skip the boring parts, right? Then last year, everything changed for me. While I didn’t get through the entire Bible, I started in Genesis and began reading it, not skipping anything.
It was awesome! I realized there were so many good parts that I had been skipping over, simply because I didn’t want to put in the effort or thought they were boring.
I got a lot out of reading parts of the Bible I hadn’t read before. And the same might be true for you too. Perhaps you haven’t read sections of the Bible. Maybe because they didn’t interest you, or perhaps for some other reason.
Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. – Psalm 119:18 (NLT)
Challenge yourself to get into the Bible this year. Read it. Even the parts you normally would skip. You’ll be amazed how you grow in your knowledge of God and in your relationship with Him.
And if you feel like you won’t understand it, ask God for His help. Like today’s verse says, ask Him to open your eyes to see the wonderful truths in the Bible. There’s no doubt about it, the Bible will help you grow!
