Last week’s poll, What time of day do you read the Bible?, got a great response—over 3,000 people stopped by to tell us about the timing of their Scripture reading.
Here’s what you told us about when you read the Bible:
In the morning: 61%
In the evening: 33%
It’s neat to see so many people starting out their day with Scripture reading; engaging with God’s Word at the start of the day is a good way to establish a focus on God throughout the rest of the day. I also like the idea of closing out the day with evening devotional reading. However, I’m one of the apparently rare breed of mid-day Scripture readers; I find that a bit of Scripture read over my lunch break helps me stay grounded when the workday has gotten busy and occasionally stressful.
Obviously, anytime is a good time to read Scripture, and there’s no rule that says you can only pick up your Bible once per day. So whenever you read your Bible, keep it up—and if Scripture reading isn’t part of your daily routine, give it a try! You’ll be amazed at how rewarding it is.
Our new poll today follows up on last week’s, and continues the trend of getting nosey about your Scripture reading habits. We’ve asked you when you read Scripture; now we’re curious how long you spend in your reading.
