What is the last book you recommended to a friend? Or the last time you couldn’t get your nose out of a book?
What if the Book we couldn’t put down this fall was God’s Word? Shouldn’t the Greatest Story be our Greatest Read? It’s the most important book a parent, mentor, and our children will ever read.
The hardest part is getting started. It’s a Big Book! Start small, and always remember this is not about a method, but a relationship. The goal isn’t how much you read, but meeting Jesus every time you read.
Here are three options:
- Follow a Bible reading plan. There are a number of them online. Or choose a chapter and saturate yourself in it for a month. Download a free guide here.
- Read Children’s Bibles. The simplicity of a children’s Bible helps us understand how the events, places, and people fit into God’s Big Story.
- Listen to Audio versions. When reading is not easy or enjoyable, for you or your children, this is a great option.
If the Bible hasn’t been your greatest read, good news. Today is a new day, and with Jesus there is no condemnation or shaming. When we accept His invitation to open God’s Word, He meets us as we are with love to remind us we are loved.
