Reading the Bible in a Month

My friend, Kim, disciplined herself to read all of the Bible in the whole month of January. She read 8 chapters each day in each of 5 sections (Law, History, Poetry, Prophecy and New Testament). Her husband posted on his blog what she learned in the process. Here are some of what she said:

1. The unchanging character of God is always in the foreground (His holiness, compassion, faithfulness and grace) and shines against the backdrop of man’s continual failures. His focus on the heart stood out this time as well, especially in the Old Testament amidst all the detailed instructions on conduct.

2. God’s message, plan, and sovereign orchestration of all events to accomplish this plan are consistent on every page. I am convinced that anyone who says the Bible is inconsistent has not spent much time in it.

I encourage you to read the rest of what she learned HERE! How about you? Do you have a Bible reading plan? I'm doing the ESV Bible Reading Plan.
