1. Set aside a time and place
Knowing where and when you’ll be reading each day is an important part of establishing the routine into the daily habits of your life.
2. Remember that your effort is not in vain
As you prayerfully reflect on the Word each day, God will use your effort to cultivate your heart for His purposes.
3. Make the time a priority
There are many ways that we can choose to spend our time, but the time spent in daily Bible reading is something you will never regret.
4. Don’t get bogged down
At first, there will likely be many places, names, and events that are unknown to you. Don’t let that bother you. The more you read, the more that things will begin to fit together. Jot down any questions you have about the reading. You can then research these things later or bring them up in your group time.
5. Prepare for a marathon
Most of us are used to trying things for a few days, then we flake out over time. Remember that you’re in the process of instilling a life-long habit. Stay faithful each day.
