30 Books in 30 Days


Tomorrow is September 1st. To me, September 1st is one of the best days of the year. Read my blog posting tomorrow and you will find out why. But let me issue a challenge for the month of September to all my readers here at "Folks Listen." I challenge you to read 30 books in the 30 days that are in September. That's right - 30 books in just 30 days.

I'm talking books of the Bible. There are exactly 30 books in the Bible that are 9 chapters or less in length. 27 of these books are 6 chapters or less. I have listed them below. Why don't you read one of these books in its entirety each day starting tomorrow, September 1st. Come September 30th you will have read 30 books of the Bible in 30 days. Are you up for the 30/30 challenge? Here are the books:

Ruth
Song of Solomon
Lamentations
Joel
Amos
Obadiah
Jonah
Micah
Nahum
Habakkuk
Zephaniah
Haggai
Malachi
Galatians
Ephesians

Colossians
1 Thessalonians

Awesome, Jacob! I am looking forward to starting tomorrow with reading the book of Ruth!

You going to detach from "sermon prep" in your reading... I find that really difficult....

Pastor Scott said...

Actually, Jacob, I try to keep my personal Bible reading separate from my study for messages.
