Yes it is. For those of you who don’t know, around this time of year a group of people – myself included – take their Christmas breaks and spend them reading through the Bible. Your initial thought there probably was “The entire Bible?!?!” and yes, quite a few of us have (though this year a lot of people are swamped with school, and it looks like a group will be doing only the New Testament)
There are one or two points to this. One, it puts the holiday focus where it needs to be. On God. I understand that quite a bit of family stuff goes on over Christmas break, and we don’t blame anyone who can’t join us… or who joins and doesn’t end up finishing. Which brings us to point two: to dig into the Word and read more than we would normally have read. Even if you read just a few chapters more than you would have otherwise and flop after that we don’t consider it a failure. We think it great that you spent even that much more time in the word.
