Two days ago I started on a plan to read though the Bible in 90 days. It is a pretty heavy schedule, requiring quite a bit of time. Surprisingly I am actually a few chapters ahead.

I don’t think so…. and with that I leave you with a post of inspiration… a.k.a. Ray Ortlund saying what I just tried to say… except better:
I have met people who knew a lot about baseball, a lot about oldies rock and roll [oops], a lot about computers, a lot about a lot, but I have never met anyone who knew the Bible too well. Not one person. Ever. Especially not in these times….
