Reading Date

June 18, 2010

in the generous life

Set up a “reading date.” Take turns reading things that you find interesting to each other. It might be a favorite scripture or quote. Perhaps share a passage from a favorite novel or a bit from a news article. Share why it is special or of interest to you and share your thoughts about it. (Paul and I sometimes do this with movie dates as well. We share what part of the movie stood out to us and about anything that seemed profound or had truth in it.)

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.  Benjamin Disraeli

Be generous!  Lori <><

A friend shared recently that she and her husband used this method to do Bible study together. The take something like Daily Bread or Streams in the Desert and choose a passage to read. My friend said that they then sometimes spent upwards to an hour discussing the story or the Scripture often finding themselves discovering new things about each other. The interesting thing is this couple has just celebrated their 34th anniversary. There is always more to learn about each other. All we need is the right atmosphere.

My husband and I did this one night, we read “Song of Songs” to each other. I read the woman’s part and he read the man’s. Some parts were pretty humorous, but it was nice. We even lit the candles and set on the floor close to each other. It was great until we got to the part that I read “I wish you were my stepbrother” Too funny!

I truly enjoy all your posts Lori! Thank you so much for daily ideas and enouragements!
God bless you!
