Job 1-5 Well, my reading plan juked and jinked and took me from Genesis right into Job. I was expecting to be floating down the Nile with baby Moses this week… but, instead, I am sitting beside Job’s three friends and listening intently to the exchange between them and their greatly suffering friend. My reading plan is […]Read More “Why Me?” – Job Gets Tested
Genesis 14-50 With God’s help, I have remained fairly faithful in my daily reading. At the same time, my daily posting about the reading has kind of fallen by the wayside. While actually doing the reading is the important thing, writing about it is also key for me. Posting my thoughts and impressions helps to […]Read More Patriarchs – The Cliff Notes Version

Today’s passage first takes us through the general genealogies of Noah’s three sons. There are some fun names in there. I propose we bring some of them back. What’s up, […]Read More Babel On
Today’s reading: Genesis 8,9 and Psalm 12. The aftermath of the flood brings us a new covenant with God. He has promised to never destroy the Earth in this manner again. God blesses Noah and his three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth and tells them to be fruitful and multiply, which they set about doing […]Read More Noah Gets Lit and Ham Gets Fried
I have begun waking up early and having a regular time of Bible reading every morning. That was the first step. Now that I have found it possible (and truly, rather easy) to soak in the Word before the sun rises, my next step will be better using that precious time to reflect and listen.
