The Bible is given to us as a gift to feast on, rather than a project to complete before judgment day

Dan Hames writes at Theology Network: We will find we go to it to savour and enjoy, and when we miss a day we might feel hunger pangs, but we could never feel guilt, fear, or condemnation. In the same way that skipping breakfast is more of a missed opportunity than a morally dubious choice; not going to the scriptures for nourishment is not a matter of calling down the anger of God, but of omitting to take advantage of his good gifts to his children.

From the new Bible Reading section of Theology Network which also features David Gibson's great article on why we believe the Bible is God's word, and Mike Reeves' excellent Transformission 2008/9 preaching on The Word of God
