Bible Study

This month I have chosen to give you an idea for a method of bible study. This idea was given to me by a parishioner at Honey Creek UMC. I added an application on my phone that is called Holy Bible. This application has a number of features that you may choose, but I have two things that I use every day.

This first idea is that it sends me a Bible verse for each day. You determine when it comes to you and somehow, a mystery to me, mine comes at 10:40AM each morning.

The best thing about this application for me is for bible study. You may pick a theme, such as love, healing, anxiety, etc. and it will give you suggestions of different bible studies. The range in time is from a few days to a month. The first two years I decided to use these short-term studies.

The last two years I have chosen to do one-year studies. Two years ago, I did the reading of the New Testament. It had me read the all the books of the New Testament over one year. This year I am using a year long study of Psalms and Proverbs. I read a Psalm and one Proverb each day. It appears to me that I will be reading the Psalms about twice and Proverbs about five times.

Whether you use this application or another that is similar, it helps me to stay on task of reading each day and I would suggest that you give it a try. If you need any help finding the application check with me or see someone under five years old for help.
