Today I am reading Philippians.

We all have access to Jesus.  We all have access to the word of God.  It is free.  Let's devour this free gift.  It is the knowledge of the fullness of God.  It is food.  It is not a competition unless that is what helps motivate you to read.  God created you and he may have put that drive in you.  It is meant to be read quickly, slowly, and re-read over and over again.  It will always have something new for you.  Look for where you are led and take notice of things that are highlighted to you.  God is always giving you information for your growth and encouragement.  He knows exactly where you are and what you need.  Release the expectation that others will respond to what you are learning.  Discuss the word to encourage and to build each other up.  God, the Holy Spirit, is everyone's teacher.  Trust me, he can handle the job.  

Look up Scriptures about the word of God being our food. 

John 15:4  Abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
