I started reading through the Bible again this year. The last time I started this, it took me 4 years to finish. Not because I was only studying the Bible every fourth day but because I would stop every time I did a Beth Moore study--and then pick it up again. This time I am DETERMINED to finish it in 1 year. Now I know there are some out there who are doing the Bible in 90 Days and I am highly impressed! 90 DAYS? It took me 4 YEARS to get through it the last time! I am going for a year--whether our church does a Beth Moore study or not. We just finished her study of Daniel a few weeks ago and I have managed to stay on track so far! Anyway, I was reading in Numbers today--Numbers chapter 12 to be exact. And I have a big question-- Can any one of my two or three readers tell me why Miriam was stricken with leprosy for speaking ill of her brother Moses-- and Aaron got off scott-free for the very same thing? What is up with that? Maybe because Aaron was the High Priest-- and not just because he was a man? Hmmm... Sometimes, it is all mystery to me! I am loving the Old Testament though. ( I love Moses too because I am like him in that I am not good at public speaking either).! I am keeping a notebook this time through and I feel like it is really helping me to soak it all up! God is so good and his Word is everlasting and life-changing!! If you're not reading, you should be! *Updated to add: I looked my question up in my commentary--(I was being lazy to ask you!)--it says it was because Miriam was probably the chief instigator and if Aaron had been stricken, it would have been bad for the priesthood.

I would like to read through the bible in a year too. I seem to get sidetracked... I am doing a beth moore study now. I really like the way she approaches her studies, I feel independently guided through the scriptures.
