Bored with Bible Reading?

Hey friends! Here's a quick "hack" for some who struggle with motivation for daily Bible reading. Remember the old saying, "Familiarity breeds contempt"? When it comes to Bible study, familiarity can also breed apathy. The minute we come to the Bible with the attitude, "I know this verse already," we're in for trouble. To avoid this, try reading the Bible in different translations. 

Doing this might jar your attention so that you can read the passage with fresh eyes. I use the Living Bible regularly, as well as Wuest's and Williams' New Testaments. Your iPhone has umpteen more options, including Hawaiian Pidgin for all you kanes and wahines out there. 

Hope you're all well!
