They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I hope Doug Smith the proprietor of Gazing at Glory feels that way, because I lifted this feature straight from his blog. He chose to entitle the feature on his blog, "Have you read your Bible before you read your Blogs?" I chose "Bible Before Blogdom", because of the cool alliteration. Also it fits better on the sidebar. It seemed like a wonderful feature and I hope it causes some blog readers, including myself, to set aside the time to read the Bible. I chose the plan incorporated by the ESV site. It uses a modified version of Robert Murray M'Cheyne's reading plan and offers audio as well.
D.A. Carson has penned a two volume set of books. They are entitled "For the Love of God." I recommend them as a daily devotional while reading through the Bible. They follow M'Cheyne's reading plan. The first volume comments on the first two daily readings entitled family readings and the second volume comments on the last two daily readings entitled private. It should be noted that the reading plan I am using on this blog is adapted from M'Cheyne's reading plan so it varies from the original plan, as well as, Carson's books.
May this feature cause me, as well as others, to spend daily devotional time reading our Bibles so that we grow in spiritual maturity and better glorify God.
