Today is our final reading for 2013 and it is also the completion of our read through the entire Bible. Revelation 21:6 is a great culmination of what we’ve read this year. He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. I am so thankful to everyone who participated in reading this year. It was a great accomplishment to read the entire Bible with you this year. Few have attempted this and even few have accomplished it.
Next year we will change things up and probably slow things down a bit. I will most likely combine last year’s process of reading the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs with this year’s reflection day each Sunday to allow us time to reflect on the previous week’s reading and give time to catch up if you fall behind.
My friend Sarah also suggested some topical readings which we can certainly combine into our plan if we are only reading one chapter instead of 4-5 chapters per day. I will post this year’s plan by December 31st. In the meantime, we will have reflection posts for the last three days of 2013. May you and your family have a blessed New Year!
