My habits have combed that entire spectrum of the years. Now that I am a Reverend, there is an increased desire to study the Scriptures, so now I would place myself in the first category. I think the key is HABIT. If you tell yourself, "7:00 AM is God's time." It may not feel great, but that's because our flesh isn't a fan of Scripture.

I use Bible Gateway.

I also like going to Bible studies.

It gets me in contact with other men,(iron sharpens iron) and get insights on
God's word.

When I was younger, I thought the only thing that would help my Gospel Programs was going to magic lectures. Don't get me wrong, I still like to fellowship with magicians...and am blessed to have an active F.C.M. group near our house.

I also am blessed with a beautiful Christian woman as my wife.
Annie also goes to Bible study with folks from our Church home.

love brother Harris

I like the One Year Bibles - they make daily reading so much easier. I just got a new one from Sams Club -- ESV with two different OT & two NT passages each day. Takes you through the entire OT once and NT twice in year.

The One Year Bibles are a wonderful tool. It is amazing what a little structure can do for one's devotions.

My daily devotional reading is to read a chapter per day in each of the following areas: OT, Proverbs, Psalms, NT.
I begin again as I finish each of them. Naturally, it puts me reading through Proverbs about once a month, and Psalms about twice a year.
It is a system I have used for about a decade, and I recommend it! You always get to see OT in light of the NT, and a daily dose of Wisdom from the Proverbs, Along with worship from Psalms.
I like the motto from Ray Comfort "No Read, No Feed", which means if I make it a point to feed my body first thing in the morning, I shouldn't neglect nourishing my spirit!
Blessings!

I am in the process of reading through the entire bible in a year, but not chronological. I've never done this before. This is my first time. I started about 4 months ago. I have an outline that has the different chapters you must read every day to reach your goal. So far I'm doing pretty good. There were a few times I missed and then had to make it up to keep on tract.

ChrisG, I heard of the chronological order, but never knew what order it actually was.

Chronological order varies by the scholar. There's some stuff that's just not fully nailed down and is open to interpretation. Most of the differences, in my very limited understanding, are fairly minor.

What might be more helpful is a historical timeline that puts the Bible's events in step with the other nations. I don't have the link, but there's a timeline that I've seen that wraps history up in a circle on a wall poster. Some day I'll have one.

Not daily, but pretty close. I have The Jerusalem Bible. I am constantly looking up passages. I keep it close by.

Daily. Typically I have the opportunity to spend my first thirty minutes or so in the office in the morning in Bible study, devotion and prayer. I am currently reading Isaiah. I am also enjoying a devotional book by John Piper. My wife and I have "Bible Time" with our three children most evenings. We are cuurently enjoying the book of Luke. Thank you for asking. Time in His Word always puts the day in proper perspective. God bless.

I use a bible software called e-sword when I study(its a free download). It breaks the words down and has a lot of commentary, maps, and daily readings built in as well. It has a word search and topic search along with it if you are wanting to study a certain topic. I use other software too (libronix) but I recommend e-sword because its free(there are some books on e-sword that you pay for that are worth it)

Daily ; -using meditation magazines and a daily meditations book (4 in all = a half hour+ ) Though I find often I don't remember What I read the Day befor(even if I review-of course I am 76+) - then I realized that like food - you don't always remember what you ate the day befor - BUT - you WERE nourshed - and usually do what you read, in your daily activities.
