If, by Thursday, you find yourself behind in the readings, take note of the chapters you’ve missed, and join in with the readings scheduled for those days.
I encourage you to remember that falling behind is not an excuse to give up! The benefit of reading the bible daily outweighs any notion that it somehow won’t be of any value if you’ve had to take some temporary shortcuts. If you’re a few chapters behind, that’s OK. More than 5 or 6 chapters, think seriously about using this catch-up point.
If you don’t have the D.A. Carson book yet, I heartily encourage getting it to help get the most of the scriptures you’re reading. Study bibles (such as the ESV study bible) are also great for explaining confusing passages. I find that the more unanswered questions you have about the text, the less inclined you are to keep reading.
If you’d like to make some useful bookmarks, simply print off these sheets, and cut them into columns. You can use them to keep track of readings you may have missed. It’s also useful to highlight those days where you are to read more than 2 chapters, or where some larger chapters are divided into two.
