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. :-)
