Digging Deep: 76 Hours

Today I just want to share a visual to help you think about reading the Bible broadly. This chart shows approximately how long it takes to read each book of the Bible...

{via Desiring God}

It's not as overwhelming as it sounds, right? I could cover I and II Peter in under a half an hour. Even a long book like Genesis takes only 3.5 hours to read through. I have to admit I've binge-watched Downton Abbey for about the same amount of time on a sick day before.

With a good plan in place and daily prayer asking the Spirit for self-control, you can easily and joyfully read through the Bible this year. I promise you will never regret sacrificing those 76 hours of your life. The rewards far outweigh the minutes.

{Here is an interesting article giving ideas to help you read the Bible broadly}.
