Daily Bible Reading is your opportunity to get a short scripture and devotional thought sent to your email inbox each morning. It only takes a minute or two to read, and it's a great way to actively engage with the weekend teaching series.
While nine out of every ten adults in America own a Bible of their own, only about 1/3 report reading it at least once per week—35 percent according to one Pew Research Center religious landscape study. A more recent study conducted by the Barna Group reveals six in ten people want to read the Bible more than they currently do.
So why don't we read the Bible more?
We don't have time. Rather—we don't make time. Whether it's screen time, work, family demands, or even a hobby, we're all susceptible to giving our time away to things other than hearing from God.
We don't know where to start. The Bible is a thick, sometimes intimidating book. It doesn't seem quite so intuitive to start at the front (and let's be real—Leviticus is a tough read), but if you don't start at the beginning, then where?
We don't understand what it means. The books of the Bible were written in a historical context that requires a lot of explanation and study. It's downright confusing if you don't have someone guiding you.
