The Bible can be intimidating to many people. I realize that it can be difficult to know how to approach a 1000 page book. Therefore, I would like to offer a few suggestions for you to keep in mind as you read the Scriptures.
1. Use a reading plan to help you cover the entire Bible in a systematic fashion. With 15-20 minutes a day you can read the Bible in a year.
2. Take a book of the Bible and read and re-read it, over and over. That will help you gain an increased understanding of its content.
3. Memorize a portion of Scripture. That will sink that passage deep into your heart and give you edifying material for your mind to dwell on.
4. Read the Scriptures with another person and reflect together on what you have read.
