Last August, I began listening to a unique program on KHCB-FM Houston, called Haven Today. Each program focuses on a current news event, and relates it to scripture. On the first of March, the host, Charles Morris, began encouraging listeners to read the Bible in 90 days or the New Testament in 21 days.
I declined the invitation outright. Reading the entire Bible in 90 days looked like another way for me to fail. I confess that I have never read the Bible through in one year, and, believe me, I’ve attempted it many times.
Today’s guest on the program did get my attention though when she said that three things came about as she and a group at Saddleback Church read the Bible cover to cover in 90 days:
- extra energy,
- multiplied time,
- and increased discipline in other areas.
Ok, I’ve accepted the challenge because I could do with a good dose of all the above. I downloaded the 90-day bookmark from Haven Today, and read the first 16 chapters of Genesis. I’m thinking that I’m going to get that hour back that I lost this weekend due to Daylight Savings Time.
