My oldest daughter, 12-year-old D.D., was greeted first thing in the morning with a photo-flash and a hundred fins a few days ago. Why? Because she finished another yearly read-through of her Bible.
Her Bible of choice is The New Living Translation version of the One Year Bible. It’s a great way to read systematically. There is a daily reading from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs.
I started reading to her when she was one day old in the incubator. I Read Matthew chapter 1 to start—the genealogies! She fell right asleep.
Is it bribery or blessing?
I call it an incentive so that she will have a full understanding of what God requires of her; so she will fall in love with Jesus more and more each day; so she will know how a holy and righteous God condescended to save her through faith in His Son. And there’s a whole lot more reasons. Click here to read them from the post of when my 10-year-old earned her $100!
