How long does it take for you to get ready and out the door in the morning ? As an approximate, it takes me about an hour, lets be honest-usually more. An hour of finishing laundry, applying lotion, plucking my eyebrows, applying makeup, reading the paper, making oatmeal, looking for deodorant, jumping on top of Haley in her bed, walking outside, face-booking, you get the picture. Jam packed full of…stuff?
Welp, here goes. Come along with me as I replace that hour with reading the bible. Until May 26th. No more dinking around in the am before work. One hour-bible reading, simple as that.
I leave you with a Brennan Manning qoute- “If we maintain the open-mindedness of children, we challenge fixed ideas and established structures, including our own. We listen to people in other denominations and religions. We don’t find demons in those with whom we disagree. We don’t cozy up to people who mouth our jargon. If we are open, we rarely resort to either-or: either creation or evolution, liberty or law, sacred or secular, Beethoven or Madonna. We focus on both-and, fully aware that God’s truth cannot be imprisoned in a small definition. ”
