JOY FROM READING THE BIBLE
The joy of reading the Bible in one year gives you time to read and study in both the New and Old Testaments, or you have the option of just reading in the Old or New Testament and/or in Psalms and Proverbs – whatever meets your need at the time. Today you can determine your need daily and seek and listen to God’s wisdom and guidance – look to Proverbs 8 or Psalms 31 for faith in these troubled times. The New Testament reading in Matthew 25:1-30 offers the story of the ten girls – five of them foolish with no oil to refill their lamps and five wise with oil for their lamps. The wise girls were ready – as we need to be -- for none of us know the day or time of the Lord’s return.
