How to not read the Bible

I’m not too good at reading through a devotional or even following a Bible reading plan…

My goal for this year is to read the entire New Testament, but I didn’t put any restraints on myself to read the books in a particular order.

I like it much better this way and there’s no guilt over not following a plan.

You shouldn’t feel guilt while reading the Bible. At least, not when it comes to following or not following a plan. 

Yes, read your Bible.

Yes, it’s a good idea to read your Bible every day.

Just ditch the guilt because it’s counterproductive. 

Scripture says that the Bible is life and health to those who find it.

There’s nothing healthy about being legalistic toward Bible reading. 

About six months ago, I was praying about this subject and here’s what I heard:

Isn’t the point to spend time with Me?To learn more about following Me? I’m just happy you are reading. 

And that set me free.

It’s my prayer for you to be set free as well.

As Christians, it is important for us to know the Scriptures.

The Bible is God’s will expressed to mankind. 

Keep in mind that legalism and religiosity is not a part of that plan.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic. 
Until next time,

Happy reading!
