The Bible

Greetings all.
Today is one of those days when I often wondered why I didn't embrace Christianity when I was younger.
Now don't get me wrong, I have always believed in God but living the life that God wanted me to live was another thing.
I take comfort in knowing that many of the people in the Bible received their calling later in life but let me just say..Grasp being a Christian early in life.
I say that because I am doing the reading the Bible in one year.
In one way, I think that perhaps this is suppose to be my season to read the Bible completely.
For years, the Old Testament of my Bible was in pretty good shape. Pages still crisp and new looking.
There were a few pages in Genesis that had some pages looked at but not much more than that.
I did highlight the passages of the Old Testament that we went over in church but that was about it.
And there are the Psalms and Proverbs.
For some reason only known to God, I actually thought the Psalms and Proverbs were a part of the New Testament.
I mean I knew they were in the Old Testament, but my mind moved them over to the New Testament because they had that "easy reading" quality that we find in the New Testament. :-)
Well things are back to normal now and I have put Psalms and Proverbs back where they belong. :-)
Well now I can say that I have made it through the Old Testament to the book of Joshua and have I been missing a lot.
If you are like me, the book of Genesis is pretty easy reading until chapter 5. In chapters 1-4 we understand the creation of the world, the creation of man, the first sin and fall of man, and the famous quote "Am I my brother's keeper".
Then chapter 5. My friends call it the begotting chapter.
Let me tell you that one word of wisdom that I learned from this chapter.
You will never know what generation is going to produce the great man or women of God.
Think about it.
