Bible Intake for People Like Me
On January 5, 2009, everything changed. On that day, my first daughter Lucy was born. I became a dad, something I love more than I can explain.
I also lost my ability to maintain any semblance of a devotional life. Since that day, whenever I’ve decided to wake up early to read some scripture and pray, one or the other of my girls displays some miraculous sixth sense, knows daddy’s up, and it’s playtime! So, I gave up a while back, attempting more of an on-the-fly approach and waiting for the day when my girls get a little older and sleep a little later.
Enter the Daily Audio Bible Podcast. I am so thankful that Brian Hardin had this idea and ran with it. Every morning, I get in my car to commute to work, and I have 20 uninterrupted minutes alone, with only minimal concentration required elsewhere (sheepish grin). Brian’s approach is simple – he reads according to a through-the-bible-in-a-year plan and then makes some simple pastoral remarks about the passages he reads. I usually only listen to the actual scripture reading, so I can’t really vouch for his theology or hermeneutics. But he has a good reading voice and reads the scripture clearly, and that’s all I’m looking for.
So, if you’re in the same boat as me and need consistent Bible intake without the luxury of a daily “prayer closet,” head over to iTunes and subscribe for free.
