Bible in 90 Days- Day 8 Check In

I am reading through Leviticus now.  So far I have kept up with my reading.  I have missed one night- at the beach- which I made up the next day while we were riding.

The books of the law are difficult for me to read.  Every time I read them I get really bogged down.  What does it mean for me now?  Should I be trying to keep all the law?  Is saying we are living under grace not the law just a cop out?  Why were the laws so detailed?

Actually as I was reading through some of the law the other day, I was thinking on these things.   Then I picked up my journal to see what verse I was memorizing this week.  I’m participating in The Homeschool Lounge’s Summer Devotions Challenge, and I am memorizing a verse each week.  I picked the verses form a Bible study book I had.  This week’s verse was a familiar one:  Matthew 7:12:
So then, whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so do also to and for them, for this is (sums up) the Law and the Prophets.

The first part of the verse was very familiar- The Golden Rule.  But, the second part caught my eye.  This sums up the Law and the Prophets.  I’m so glad that God is gracious enough to sum it up for someone like me who has some trouble getting the point sometimes.

I am enjoying my second reading through the Bible.  It seems easier to keep up this time.  I am also getting lots of use out of my Bible in 90 Days Bible this time.
