Have you planned to feed your soul in 2011?

This is a little late, but better late than never.  I was writing the discussion questions for the Home Group leaders and I started by encouraging them to ask those in their groups if they have a Bible reading and prayer plan in place.  I then sent them this link.  If you can't find a program in there that suits you, you're going to have to write your own!

I know that many people get frustrated with "Read the Bible in a Year" programs (I'm one of them!) because they feel like they can't read all the chapters required each day without sacrificing careful thought and meditation.  If that's you, then scrap the dates and use the boxes simply to help you read comprehensively over time and not spin your wheels wondering what you should read next.  If you don't do that, you're likely to avoid things you don't understand and stick with familiar ground.  You'll end up reading only your particular canon within the canon.  Don't do that.  "All Scripture is God-breathed."  Some of the sweetest soul food can be found when you enter into uncharted territory and wrestle with things you don't understand...until they bless you.
