Welcome to your week 2! At this point, you may have some questions about what you are reading. That’s ok. Feel free to reach out by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or messaging a pastor on Facebook.
A quick tip: a lot of people start falling behind in the second or third week. This is normal. If you miss a few days, that’s ok. Rather than spending several hours to catch up in one day, just fast-forward to the current day. You can go back later to catch up when you have some more time, either on a weekend or a couple days off. Or, you can add a chapter or two to each day’s reading to get back on track.
Lastly – don’t miss out on reading the Psalms. These are, for many, more easy to identify with than any other parts of Scripture because they are prayers (set to song in their day) written out of a specific life circumstance. Many find comfort in reading them because they help in expressing sorrow, joy, wonder, and many more emotions in a healthy way to God.
With all that said, here’s your reading for Week 2 of a “year in the bible”…
