I finished a chronological Bible reading plan today. I am terrible about those. I always think to myself, “I should really spend more time reading the Bible,” and so I do.
I jump into a reading plan (or just try to read willy nilly*) and for a few days or weeks, I do very well. But then I get “busy.”
*For those of you who don’t know, the phrase “willy nilly” simply means without a plan or intended direction.
So when I got my iPhone, I found this Bible app from LifeChurch.tv, and decided I would try another reading plan.
111 days later, I read through the Bible chronologically with YouVersion. Finished. The whole thing.
Chronologically was a fun way to go too. Everything in the order it happened (as far as the people who made the plan can tell).
YouVersion is really well laid out. It has a good search function, a myriad of reading plans, and a plethora of translations.
El Guapo: Would you say I have a plethora of [translations]?
Jefe: A what?
El Guapo: A *plethora*.
Jefe: Oh yes, you have a plethora.
El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
El Guapo: Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
You can go online (to the actual website youversion.com) and change the length of a plan. You can also set accountability features (or even use your own email to remind you to read when you get behind).
So if you have an iPhone, a Blackberry, or some other smart phone, go download that app. It is well worth the $0.00 I spent on it. Yeah, that’s right, it’s free.
So I guess I’m telling you to go get it. It helps in the never ending quest to increase your knowledge of “The Good Book” and of the One who wrote it.
But I’m also simply telling you to read your Bible more.
I should. And I did.
And now I will again.
