We’re well into March now, nearly a quarter of the way through the year—odds are, if you’re still keeping up with your Bible reading plan, it’s becoming a habit and getting easier. Are you starting to notice any positive changes in your spiritual walk as a result?

If you’ve fallen behind a bit (or a lot!), don’t despair! Remember, a Bible reading plan isn’t about simply meeting an arbitrary goal or establishing bragging rights. It’s about training yourself to spend some time—even just a few minutes, if it’s all your schedule allows—in God’s Word each day. Instead of giving up on your Bible reading, consider scaling back the amount you read each day. Even just a handful of verses read first thing in the morning can make a big difference in your spiritual focus.

For those of you who are reading straight through the Bible but are getting bogged down, there’s light at the end of the tunnel: you are nearing the end of the five Books of Moses, a section of the Bible that, while important and certainly worth reading, is notorious for being challenging to read straight through. Soon you’ll be into the Historical books of the Old Testament, which contain many familiar and well-loved stories.

In last week’s poll we asked you about who you’d like to take to dinner: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. Nearly 4000 of you extended a virtual dinner invite to one of the Gospel writers, and most decided on John (2,499 votes). Mark (176 votes), on the other hand, should stop checking his inbox.

Here’s the breakdown of votes:

If you could, which one Gospel writer would you most like to have dinner with?

John: 65%
Luke: 21%
Matthew: 10%
Mark: 4%

Total Voters: 3,852
