Daily Prompt: Second Time Around

Daily Prompt: Second Time Around.

I have been reading the Bible for about 40 years of my life. While I have never started at the beginning and read straight through, there are certainly parts that never fail to teach me a new lesson. Some words that I have come across have been little more than words on the page, but at another stage in my life have served as terms of powerful inspiration.  As I get older, some texts have taken on different shades of meaning. The lyric poetry of the Psalms is breathtaking in places. I especially love the gospel of Luke. The way he tells the story that is so familiar to many of us  speaks to me in a way that is more personal than his fellow writers of the Good News. Isaiah and Paul’s letter to the Romans are also favorite books of mine in this lengthy tome.

I hope to read and reread the Bible for the rest of my days and to gain something new from its wisdom upon each reading.

  2. my goal one day is to be able to read the bible literally cover to cover… and currently, i am failing miserably at it.

    • There are schemes on the internet to put one on a schedule to read the entire Bible in different periods of time – 90 days, 365 days, etc. I challenge you to try one of these disciplines. Want to do it together for accountability?

  4. Wow! almost the same post.

  5. As the inspired, living word of God, the Bible is, indeed, excellent (and, I think, necessary) to read over and over again. Daily inspiration, instruction, encouragement.

  6. Oddly enough, I have read the entire book of Isaiah – but that’s all. I do use the Bible as reference though – sometimes I am amazed by all the issues that is covers … my son and I started reading Genesis together … he’s 6 – it’s really cool to watch him learn about creation 🙂
