Must Read
A Vacation Work Ethic


I had a seminary professor who said once, "Study the whole Bible, but choose one book that is 'your book.'  When you choose that book, study it, take it apart regularly, put it back together and then take it apart again.  It doesn't matter if it's Old or New Testament, just choose a book that you will focus on."  For me, that book is Proverbs.

My book, A Daily Dose of Proverbs, was the result of doing what my professor suggested. Since there are 31 days in most months and 31 chapters in Proverbs, it is possible to read a chapter a day -- the fifth chapter on day five, the seventh on day seven and so forth -- and read all of Proverbs every month.   In my book, I chose one verse for every day of the year from the chapter for the day and wrote a one-page devotional.  It is my best-selling book and I regularly get great feedback from readers, some of whom have read it daily for several years.

What book of the Bible is "your book?"  Which one do you read, study and then begin to read all over again?  If you don't have one, this would be a good time to choose.  If you do, are you still reading and studying it?  Chances are you won't ever be a Bible scholar, but you could be a scholar where that one book is concerned.  Why not try focusing on the one and see if it doesn't make you better equipped to understand the whole--where the Bible is concerned that is.
