I cannot say that I "study" the scriptures. I was never one for studying anything to be honest. I do however read them and have read through the Bible once and have read many of the books of the Bible more than several times. Starting on July 1 of this year I will be a two year Bible reading plan in my Lutheran Study Bible. I will add a few more readings to it such as a chapter in Psalms, Proverbs, the New Testament starting with John and then onto Matthew and straight through the New Testament, as well as a chapter in the Apocrypha each day. I am also not a teacher, Lord knows that I am not a teacher. There are people far more qualified than I to teach others. I will have my hands full with my two children as they get older. Right now they are 2 1/2 years and 4 months. I do have five other children, but they are 1200 miles away and their mother doesn't want me to tell them anything about Jesus. I do not need to go to war with my ex-girlfriend, so I abide by her decision in the matter.
