First off I have never read the bible more than I was obligated to because it seemed so daunting. I am the most ADD person in the whole entire world, but you probably knew that about me already. I had been seriously considering reading the whole thing any way, but didn't know where to start or how to manage it until I ran across this challenge.
Six days in I have to say it is going much better than I expected. It is taking me about 30 - 45 minutes a day so far. It isn't miserably boring as I had assumed it would be. I mean it has sex and lies, but no video tape. Darn it. There is however audio if you prefer to listen while you read.
Here are a couple of my observations from just my first day reading.
- This would be so much better if it was published James Patterson style where every chapter starts on a new page! I fixed that. I ditched my "paper" bible and instead have gone with Bible Gateway the last few days. Problem solved and so much easier to manage.
- I had no idea I could have named C-Diddy "Nimrod" and used the excuse that it was a biblical name!
Don't get me wrong, I am getting the important stuff out of it too, but you know me I find comedy in most anything. It makes life happier.
