"The best things in life are nearest:  Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you.  Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life."

 ~Robert Louis Stevenson

260 in 260

The ladies of my congregation are starting a new Bible study "260 in 260".  I thought it was such a neat plan that I wanted to share the idea.

There are 260 chapters in  the New Testament and there just so happens to be 260 weekdays in a year...
So each weekday we'll be reading a chapter of the New Testament.  We are keeping notebooks  to take notes, summarize the chapter, and choose a favorite verse from each chapter.  Twice a month we get together to go over what we have read and share our notes.  

I thought I would share the reading plan on Monday each week throughout this year and also share the verse I choose each day.  Join in if you'd like to or, better yet, start a Bible study group of your own.  

We began last week.  To catch you up, here are the reading assignments through the end of this week.

January 31st - Matthew 1
February 1 - Matthew 2
February 2 - Matthew 3
February 3 - Matthew 4
February 4 - Matthew 5

February 7 - Matthew 6
February 8 - Matthew 7
February 9 - Matthew 8
February 10 - Matthew 9
February 11 - Matthew 10
