Restart

Stalled out in my Bible reading a while back—the allotment of territories to the tribes of Israel was more than I felt like hacking through at the time. Taking another run at it now, both in hopes of getting back on track and in recognition of the reality that it's silliness bordering on idiocy to let myself get derailed from regular, sustained time with God's Word because of a few long lists of unknown territories. Even skipping over it would be better than stopping entirely, but I want to make a good attempt simply to avoid the slippery slope of a smorgasbord approach to Scripture (picking my favorites and ignoring the rest). Sometimes I quit too easily. Maybe someday I'll read through it again with an atlas nearby.
