Bible Up, Blog Down

As I think about what is important in life, I've realized that my stated priorities have not been lining up with how I've been spending my time. Specifically related to this blog, I've been devoting too much time thinking about it and writing on it. On the other hand, I have not been spending enough time reading my bible. It's as simple as that. Therefore, I've made an executive decision. I'm reducing my weekly blog post frequency to 2-3 per week. Some will be quick links, while others will be more lengthy posts. Some weeks I might not blog at all. I need to be in the scriptures more. I just finished reading through the book of Mark over the past few days. It was wonderful. I need more of that, and my family needs me to do more of that.

Maybe you could blog your way through a book of the Bible?

Good stewardship decision..

I thought about that, but I don't want to have blogging in the back of my mind as I'm reading the text.

Maybe someday I will do that.

Thanks. I hope so.

Wow, I really respect that decision a great deal. It sets an excellent standard for me. Maybe I should do the same with blog reading.

My guess is that we all, once in a while, need to do something of this sort. The Holy Spirit will let us know. For me, for a while, this is the time.
