December Scripture Reading Idea

I came across a fun scripture reading idea a couple of years ago for the month of December. I forgot to do it again last year, but I'm going to remember this year, and thought I would share it with all of you so you can participate, too! The tip is: If you read one chapter from the Gospel of Luke every day in December, you will finish the gospel on Christmas Eve. Isn't that cool? 24 chapters, 24 days till Christmas. What a great way to celebrate the true meaning of the season, by beginning the month reading about the birth of Christ, following him through his mortal ministry, and reading about the miracle of his glorious resurrection on Christmas Eve.

A little personal twist I enjoy adding is to buy one of those chocolate advent calendars and eating that day's chocolate along with that day's chapter from Luke. Just a fun little add-on if you like. :-)

Scriptures of the month - November 2010

From the Bible:
"And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off;

"And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

"And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

"And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God.

"And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks; and he was a Samaritan.

"And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

"There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

"And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole." (Luke 17:12-19)

Question to ponder: Do I remember to say "Thank you"? Or am I among the "nine"?
