30 Day Challenge: Scripture Reading

Klout is pretty silly. I know this. It tells me an expert on writing and books even though in two years I’ve sold less than 2000 books (sell is a pretty loose term, most of that was free poorly formatted ebooks so that unimpressive stat is even less impressive). My klout number is steadily going up since I made the decision to build my online audience but it’s just me talking to my friends online so nothing is really changing. Klout numbers are pretty meaningless.

But they have some cool links.

In an effort to help me come up with cool content it posts suggestions on articles I should tweet about. That’s how I found out about the 30 day challenge. The challenge boils down to this: try something new for a month. Do something everyday for a month. The article (link above) throws around suggestions like NaNoWriMo (which I’ve done several times and it’s awesome), watching a new documentary every month, ditching a bad habit for a month, go for a walk everyday, or do something that scares you everyday.

I’ve decided to try doing the 30 day challenge 12 times this year (I’m not good at math either). That was decided as soon as I read the article. The trouble is I read it halfway through January. I am already missing the first go around of the challenge.

Lucky for me I set some new years resolutions that I’m still keeping. One of those is to read three chapters of scripture a day. I started with the Old Testament because it’s the hardest one for me to read. I’ve started many times and always flame out. Some scripture is easier to read than others.

I’m half way through Exodus now and it makes me want to watch that old Charlton Heston movie. Lots of it is a struggle to read and understand. Luckily I bought a study guide for my wife when she was reading the Old Testament last year.

It’s almost the end of the month and this challenge is pretty much over. The first month was pretty easy. The trick for this one is that I want to keep doing it for the rest of the year. I want this to become a part of my daily habits.

I have a few ideas for what I want to do for the rest of the year but I definitely don’t have 12. Feel free to comment your suggestions.
