Read the Bible in 90 Days: Day 1

I'm already a day behind in posting, but I wanted to encourage those of you who might have begun.  Late yesterday I began by reading Genesis 1-16, and just have a couple of observations:

1.  If you start reading, really reading the Bible, there will be some things that make you go "hmmm."  It's okay to have those moments.  Right now we looking at the grand sweep of the stories.

2.  Other than (perhaps) Enoch, there are no perfect people in the Bible.  At least so far.  There are good people, but no perfect people.  We'll see how that progresses.

3.   We're ending today in the middle of the story of Abraham-Sarah-Hagar.  God sees Hagar, though she is an "outsider" and gives her a promise.  A great place for a "to be continued...."
