NOTE: I hope you don't feel that if you haven't read everyday or did the study that you shouldn't check in. My hope is for you to make a habit of reading the Bible to your kids. I haven't read everyday as I planned and I don't always get to the extra study either. Just do what you can where you are!
Isn't 1 John full of good nuggets? I hope you are learning as much as I am during this Fall Bible Reading Adventure. Please be sure to CHECK-IN! (Check-in is also available on my blog in the upper right corner.) Also, tell us one thing you learned about each: Father, Son, Holy Spirit and Anti-Christ for the Review/Study days in the comment section!
Reading Plan for the week:
*Monday- 1 John 3:1-3
*Tuesday- 1 John 3:4-8
*Wednesday- 1 John 3:9-10
*Thursday- 1 John 3:11-12
*Friday- 1 John 3:13-15
*Saturday- 1 John 3:1-15
*Sunday- 1 John 3:1-15
*Review/Study-This week I want you to make a Wordless Book with your kids! I used to use it all the time to share the gospel with my students, but I haven't made one yet with my own children. Directions and verses in the link.
*And with every week ask "What does God want me to know by reading these verses? What does God want me to do by reading these verses?"
*Write a prayer to God.
Don't be shy about sharing what you are learning!
As you are reading the daily verse(s), take time to answer questions your kids have or explain what the verse means. Reading and understanding God's Word is key to knowing Him.
If you want more insight into these verses see Good Morning Girls. My schedule is slightly different from theirs.
Be sure to check back on Monday, November 5 for the next reading plan, activity and CHECK-IN!!
Here is the schedule:
We wills start October 1 and read until November 30. That's 2 months of reading the Bible EVERY DAY.
