The Whole Letter
When you get a letter in the mail, do you read it all at once? Or do you read a paragraph or two one day and then finish reading it the next day? You read the entire letter at once--right? So do you ever do that with a Book of the Bible? Today, I thought it'd be good for us to read the entire letter to the Philippians in one sitting. Now if that sounds a little daunting, it's only four chapters, and it's actually a great way to read this Book that was written as a letter. Yes, it will take some extra time, but it will be worth it.
So rather than reading chapters or just certain passages, today read the Book of Philippians from beginning to end like a letter. Did you see anything reading through this time that maybe you missed when you read the Book in segments? Did the book make more sense? Tami
P.S. Over the weekend, I want us to think about a few more questions pertaining to the Book of Philippians as a whole. So let's plan to camp out there and really soak up its message.
