My wife decided this year was going to be the year we read through the entire New Testament as a family.
There’s a lot of reasons why a family says they can’t do that:
- We don’t have time to do that
- We can’t fit one more thing into our day
- We can just do it on our own
- I don’t know where to start
- My kids will never buy into that
- My spouse won’t want to do that
The list could go on for days, but there’s no real reason every family shouldn’t be reading the Bible daily.
So here’s why this is easy.
- I took a list of the New Testament in chronological order, and from that, came up with a very simple daily reading list which you can get by clicking the following – Widick Family Chronological Reading Plan
- This won’t take you more than 5-10 minutes of your time
- It will pay off big time in the end, because a family that reads the bible together sticks together
I encourage you all to find a way to make this happen. We have made it a goal that at 8:30 every night, we stop what we’re doing, and we go the day’s reading. The reading is never more than a chapter or two, and doesn’t take very long to get through.
You don’t have to find time for questions and answers, just let the Word of God speak.
Whether you’re young or old, single or married, childless or a home full of children, I think it would do you a great bit of good to commit.
