Importance of Bible Reading Plans

The Bible is a massive book with nearly 1200 chapters and over 30,000 verses! It can seem daunting and overwhelming to read entirely. This is why a reading plan is so important, to make daily reading manageable.

A schedule of scripture passages keeps you on track to complete the Bible in a given time. Even if you fall slightly behind, you can catch up with the scheduled readings when you have time. Be inspired by the words of John Piper, who describes the importance of planning in our spiritual lives:

"Without some rudimentary planning you probably won't have anything to eat when you get up in the morning. And without some detailed planning no one can build a house, let alone a skyscraper or shopping mall or city. If producing shelter and food and clothing and transportation is valuable, then planning is valuable. Nothing but the simplest impulses gets accomplished without some forethought which we call a plan."
