I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

How About a Bible Reading Plan for 2021?

Daily Bible reading is a good thing. There is no one way to approach daily devotions, but if you have ever considered reading through the Bible in an entire year, Bible Gateway has several reading plan options for you with a variety of translations to choose from. The Bible Gateway app provides each day's readings for your preferred plan. You can read on your phone, tablet, computer, or in your preferred Bible app using Bible Gateway for each days Scripture reference(s). I prefer to read my daily devotions in a good old fashioned hardcopy, the way we did when we were youngins.

Bible Gateway offers several different reading plans. I will highlight only a few.

There is the Old/New Testament Plan where each day's readings contain one passage from the Old Testament and one from the New.

The Chronological Plan is designed for daily devotions in chronological order, at least in the order we think the stories and events happened.

Another option is the Beginning Plan that starts with Genesis 1 on January 1 and ends with Revelation 22 on December 31. This is the plan I prefer.

The Historical Plan guides the reader through the books of the Bible in timeline order of their writing.

There are also several other plans that include readings for Lent and Easter, and more selective sections of Scripture.

If you are not accustomed to reading the Bible on a daily basis, this is the perfect time to make a New Year's resolution that is not difficult to keep with the help of Bible Gateway.
