Daily Bible Reading

Every day (well, I suppose I will admit to occasionally missing), I start my day with a Bible reading.  Over the years I have read hrough the Bible, in a traditional translation, a modern one, in chronological order, etc.  I have re-started my reading again.  This time I am using a modern paraphrased version called The Message.  When you know the Bible, have grown up knowing it, it is good to read varying versions, and in varying orders.

The book I am using has 2 readings per day, and jumps around the Bible.

Anyway, one of the reasons I read is to learn something more of God and my faith, and to give me a "thought for the day".

So foten I skim through a page or two to get out the door in time.  So in the future I am going to try to pick a key verse/thought and post it here.  Please feel free to ignore, as it is mostly for my own benefit.

So, today's reading was Genesis 1 & 2, and Psalm 1.  The verses that I chose are from Genesis:-

"God looked over everything and it was good, so very good ... Heaven and Earth were finished, down to the last detail!"

(Pity us humans muck that up!)
