The teachers on my team and I like to say that education is a journey, not a race. And I find that holds true for many of life’s endeavors. There’s simply little point in rushing from one place to another without finding meaning along the way.
I never intended the New Testament in a Week Challenge to be a race through the New Testament for myself. I thought perhaps I could adhere to a plan which would take me from Matthew through Revelation if I started on Monday and ended on Sunday.
But, here it is is Thursday evening, and I’m only halfway through Luke.
That’s good, though. I’ve loved seeing the similarities, and the differences, between the gospels. And because Luke is my favorite, I might take the rest of the week reading there. It has, after all, the very essence of the week to come: the story of Jesus’ life, teachings, and sacrifice.
