“So be very careful how you live.

Do not live like those who are not wise.

Live wisely.

I mean that you should use every chance you have for doing good, because these are evil times.

So do not be foolish with your lives.

But learn what the Lord wants you to do.”

~Ephesians 5:15-17 (ICB)~

Read the Bible in 2020 – May 2

  • Judges 15:1-16:31
  • John 2:1-25
  • Psalm 103:1-22
  • Proverbs 14:17-19

If you are at this point in reading, you have read 33% of the Bible already.  Keep going.  You’re doing very well.

If you are not up-to-date, read a little extra each day until you catch up.  Another option is to read the assignments, but finish a little later.  I’m ahead want to stay there.  The main point is just to read and learn something new each day.  Let God guide your reading.
