A Time to Begin Again

January begins another year.  It’s a great time to start something new.  It’s a great time to keep those New Year’s Resolutions going.

It’s also a great time to start reading your Bible.  Why, you ask?  You make time to eat meals every day.  You make time to text and use social media.  You make time to go to work or school.  You make time to spend with your family. 

Now you may tell me that you already have a full plate and don’t have time for anything else.  That might be true, and we all have the same amount of time each and every day.  So, it really boils down to how you decide to use those hours every day. 

Occasionally, you find yourself thinking about how you want to do something.  Maybe you want to improve a work skill.  Maybe you want to do a little more study and reading.  Why not consider reading or listening to the Bible a little every day?  Take about 15 minutes each day to read or listen to the promises that God gives you.

I want to challenge you to take just 15 minutes each day to read or listen to God’s Word.  I am pretty confident that if you keep doing it for some time, you’ll find that you want to do keep doing this, even after you’ve given up on those New Year’s Resolutions.
