This is not meant to be a beating, but rather a tool to give you some help in reading and understanding God’s word.  If you miss a day, and can “catch up: by doubling up, then sweet.  If you can’t read on certain days, adjust the schedule to fit your life.  I think you will find the schedule pretty easy to maintain if you keep just a bit of discipline.

With that said…………….

This week’s reading:
Monday: Acts 8 – 10
Tuesday: Acts 11 – 14
Wednesday: Acts 15 – 17
Thursday: Acts 18 – 21
Friday: Acts 22 – 24
Saturday: Acts 25 – 28
Sunday:  1 Chronicles 1 – 4
Monday: 1 Chronicles 5 – 7

: 2 Kings 12 – 14
Chapter 12 gives us the Temple repairs made by Joash before his assassination.  Chapter 13 returns to the sin of Israel and culminates with the death of Elisha.  Chapter 14 recounts the good reign of Amaziah (son of Joash) over Judah before he too is struck down.
Tuesday: 2 Kings 15 – 17
Chapter 15 gives a rapid fire of kings of Israel and Judah at the reader, demonstrating the lack of stability in the sinful kingdoms (especially Israel).  Chapter 16 gives more idolatry and trusting of foreign nations in Israel and finishes with the coronation of Hezekiah in Judah.  Chapter 17 recounts the sin of Israel and why the nation fell to the Assyrians; as well as the fallout of this judgment.
Wednesday: 2 Kings 18 – 20
Chapters 18 & 19 are a contrast to Israel as Judah is ruled by God-fearing Hezekiah and the fruit of that reign is born out in deliverance by God.  Chapter 20 gives a falling away as Hezekiah, despite God’s healing, caters to the Babylonians instead of God and the kingdom is judged.
Thursday: 2 Kings 21 – 23
Chapter 21 begins the awful reign of Manasseh & Amon in Judah.  Chapter 22 brings hope as Josiah (8 years old) ascends the throne and the book of the Law is discovered in the Temple.  Chapter 23 brings Godly reform and covenant to the people of Judah as they begin to follow the Law once again.  The chapter ends with Josiah’s death in battle and the ascension to the throne of “puppet kings”
Friday: 2 Kings 24 – 25
Chapter 24 sees Babylon directing the affairs of Judah and the deportation of exiles (most likely when Daniel was taken).  Chapter 25 crushes Jerusalem finally as the Babylonians destroy the city and begin the final (of 3) deportations.
Saturday: Acts 1 – 3
Acts 1 sees the apostles watching the ascension of Jesus and meeting in the upper room.  Chapter 2 brings Pentecost and the Holy Spirit poured out, leading to the explosive growth of the early church.  Acts 3 sees more miraculous work by the Apostles and a 2nd sermon from Peter that convicts the hearers.
Sunday:  Acts 4 – 7
Chapter 4 has Peter and John arrested, yet faithful, and the work continuing to grow in the face of persecution.  Acts 5 sees the power of the Holy Spirit and the seriousness of fidelity in the early church.  You also see again the working of God preserving His early evangelists.  Acts 6 sees the first servants of the church handling administration; while Acts 7 has our first martyr, as Steven is killed for his faith & testimony.
