We’re not at Leviticus in our Bible reading, yet. We finished Job, and then went back to Genesis.
Tonight, Bethel asked to watch the Bible Project video for Job. I shouldn’t be surprised that they appreciate the videos more after they’ve read the book. If you haven’t watched any of these, take a look!
What if you’re not up to reading several chapters? Barbara Reaoch has a great ministry to parents who are new to reading the Bible. Every week she posts consecutive Bible passages to read with children. Her selections are short enough to read even for young children. Best of all, she gives ideas for questions to ask while and after you read. If you feel intimidated by just reading Scripture, give this website a try! You can subscribe on by liking her Facebook page, or look in the archives on her website.
And, while I’m sharing links, I would love for you to go to Facebook and like my new author page. You all know me best, and I’d love to see you participate in discussions or just say hello! I’ll be talking more about my new book called Parenting with Mercy that will be coming out soon.
Meanwhile, we’re still reading. I’m curious to see how my children react to reading Leviticus, honestly. Since my goal is to read the Bible more than talk about the Bible, I don’t feel the need to explain everything or make a modern application from each chapter. Maybe we’ll talk about what grown ups do when they are reading a portion of scripture they don’t understand well or doesn’t seem to add much to their understanding of who God is. How do you read the portions of Scripture that are over your head?
