A Bible Reading Plan that is:
Simple: Easy to understand and follow
Systematic: Verse by verse through the Bible
Short: Five minutes a day
Spiritual: Interactive questions
To Mom and Dad, like every Christian parent, I wanted my children to read the Bible. However, although I found numerous Bible reading plans for adults, I couldn’t find what I wanted for my kids. Some plans were way too ambitious and time-consuming; others just had random verses from here, there, and everywhere. Some had too much interactivity; others had too little. Some had one verse of Bible and one page of commentary! I wanted my children to have a Bible reading plan that would be simple, systematic, interactive, do-able, and full of Bible. So...I wrote one myself. And when I shared the handouts on social media, I was taken aback by the interest and appreciation. Many asked for a book version, and you are holding the result.
Each book has about 100 days of Bible reading, each day has a brief question, and each week has an area for prayer points. It shouldn't require more than five minutes a day, but, over a few years, your children will read and interact with much of the Bible. And they will end up not only with a memorable collection of Bible workbooks, but also a blessed habit of daily, systematic, interactive, and prayerful Bible reading. I hope you will also talk to your children about the books. Why not have a weekly discussion about the readings and answers, and use the opportunity to not only keep them accountable but to develop another holy habit, that of freely discussing the Word of God with one another.
May God bless these plans so that it may be said of all our children: “From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15).
