Today, as of right now, we are half-way through the Old Testament Challenge. 50 days behind us – 50 days before us.
That went by quickly!
Refresh yourself with the knowledge of having accomplished this.
Don’t Quit Half-Way Through
We having finished the Pentateuch, and completed the histories, we now move into the Wisdom books… and they are glorious. Get your pens, pencils, and highlighters ready. There are going to be a multitude of verses you will want to return to – prokeimenon verses, alleluia verses, prophecies, prefigurements, and so much beauty. It’s coming like a freight train, so get ready!
If you’re a little behind, don’t worry – you’re within the mark. Keep going! Well begun is half done, even if you have a little way to go to be half through. You’re just a little delayed.
In any event, forward. The end will be in sight before you know it.
