As September comes to a close I wish I could say I’ve finished reading the book of Psalms, but I still have a few chapters to go. I’m reading the Psalms from the King James Version Bible, and reading them out loud, which is slower for me than if I was just reading silently. I can read a novel in a few hours and enjoy the story, but I don’t want to read the Bible like a novel. I want to take more time to think about what I’m reading, and how it applies to my life. Even when I don’t read out loud, I like to take time to study and think about what I’m reading.
Tomorrow begins “October is for Proverbs“, and reading a chapter a day from the book of Proverbs — 31 chapters, 31 days in October. I’ll be switching back to New King James Version to read Proverbs.
I hope you’ll join me in reading Proverbs in your favorite Bible version, or even in a different version for a change of pace. If you don’t have a hard copy of different Bible versions, there are several online Bibles to use. I like Bible Gateway – http://www.biblegateway.com – mainly because of the extensive features available, and the search functions.
