30 Days of Bible Study for Busy Mamas: Colossians 3

August 18

Reading the same passage of Scripture 30 days in a row sounds like a waste of time.  But is it really?

Most Bible studies comes with a plan to read a small amount of Scripture each day.   A study I recently worked through had me reading the same chapter (Colossians 3) repeatedly.  In my mind that sounded like a waste of time.  My thinking is read 30 different chapters and gain more ground.

30 Days of Bible Study for Busy Mamas Colossians

That’s the thinking of a busy impatient mom!  I need to get things done.  I don’t have time to stay in one place for this long.

The author, Pam Forster, has really taken a much needed approach with Bible study, when writing this book.  The book is intended to help busy moms get into the word and even bring their kiddos along for the spiritual learning.

I am really impressed with type of study.  Some of the highlights include:

  • Small doable segments of study – Yes, the busy mom can fit this study in by working at her own pace!
  • Learning about word usage and placement – Words have meaning, but often we overlook the little words that actually have meaning and change the context of passage.  Pay attention to what you’re reading; you’ll observe more.
  • Applying what we’ve learned – Isn’t that the whole idea?  Let’s learn from what we read and become more Christ-like.
  • Furthering our studies by implementing the methods of study to other passages of Scripture – By being creative, we can do our own study with whatever book of the Bible we’d like to study next.

The book is only 83 pages, but it is packed with learning.  That’s what makes a great Bible study.  Instead of hearing the author go on and on about what they think the Scripture says, you are taught to study the Bible for yourself.

    I know a few people who would love this. Not me personally as I am not religious at all and actually have never read the bible!

      Maybe you should read it before you make up your mind.

    I don’t think I could read the same thing for 30 days and not get sick of it, especially Colossians 3. Wives submitting to husbands and slaves submitting to masters? I’m pretty sure we’re beyond that in this century.

    I do like some of the concepts behind the study. However, I would caution anyone about going into too great of detail about “word placement.” Given the various translations (and mis-translations) over the years, and the fact that most people have translated their versions from other translations and not even Aramaic texts (which, by the way have recently been said they are not Aramaic, but a dialect language that is a combination of Aramaic and Greek which few people know about), then word placement has obviously already been misconstrued.

    However, I found it highly valuable to read and study the Bible, which I’ve done completely through 7 times, so that I can come to my own conclusion that it is not to be taken literally as I was taught.

    This sounds very interesting. I am always looking for ways to make bible reading easier and more meaningful.

    My only concern is that I get bored fast so reading a few different scriptures each day on the journey to reading the bible in one year has been good. BUT I totally agree that it lacks depth.

    I am going to try this with one of my favorite bible chapters and see what happens.

    Thank you for another perspective.

    Sounds like an excellent bible study book. I can def see where you can read the same passage over and over again and do the four steps you listed and then LEARN so much more than just rushing through to ‘get it done’ and then not remembering or using any of it in our daily lives.

    Thanks for sharing, might have to check out this book.
