Read the Bible – Goal Setting

One thing I’ve noticed is that most of us are more consistent in making goals in all other areas of life, but not related to our Spiritual life.

I know, I know . . . Goal setting and God, just don’t seem to go together.

I’ve heard people say:

  • “I don’t want my Spiritual Life to feel forced.”
  • “I prefer to spend time with God when I’m in the right-mindset.” “
  • “I want to give plenty of room for the Spirit to lead.”

All of these are good points, but . . . more often than not when we don’t plan a consistent devotional strategy, it simply means that nothing is done. When it comes to handle our physical health or finances most people recognize the need for a plan of action. Yet, in the very critical area of spiritual health – this is forgotten.

What kind of goal should you set?

SMART ones:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Realistic
  • Timely

Decide in advance what your study plan will be, some examples are as follows:

  • Read-thru Bible
  • Study all verses in Bible that relate to a specific theme.
  • Follow a Bible Study / Devotional Book + the Bible

A typical goal is to complete the Bible in a year. The best way to start is to calculate the milestone; how many pages would need to be completed daily, weekly, monthly, bi-annually.  Then day-to-day work toward reaching your goal.
