Daily Bible Listening
post date: January 6, 2012
For a long time if you wanted to listen to the Bible, you had to buy a big set of CDs or DVDs. With the advent of smartphone apps, you can now listen to the whole Bible, read by a single person or read dramatically with music in the background.
This year we’re doing some daily reading and listening to the text at the same time. And we’re not following the same plan. Marlene has started reading and listening in Genesis while I’m reading and listening to Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi.
I’m doing something a bit unusual that I suppose most people wouldn’t want to do it. I’m listening to the text in one version and reading it at the same time in another version. The slight wording differences actually help me think about what the text is actually saying. That might bother many people, but it actually helps me concentrate.
I’m finding it helpful to read and listen at the same time because it slows me down and helps me think about what the text is saying. And anything that helps me think about what God’s Word is saying is good for my soul.
