After God saved me in 1990, I immediately had an immense hunger for reading and studying the Bible. I read the Bible through three times that first year.
Recently, the thought occurred to me that I have probably spent thousands of hours reading and studying the Bible.
Very conservatively doing the math, this is what I came up with for how much time I have spent:
8 years X at least 30 minutes a day x 365 days/year = 1460 hours
23.5 years X at least 1 hour a day X 365 days/year = 8577.5 hours
Total time: 10,037.5 hours
In my 31 1/2 years as a believer, I have spent more than 10,000 hours reading and studying just the Bible itself.
I fully realize that many, many other people have done far more than I have, but I still praise God for the freedom and ability that He has given me to spend this much time reading and studying His Word!
