Scripture is often compared to food for our souls. Just like we shouldn’t skip breakfast, neither should we skip an early morning appointment with God’s Word. Each month the Creator’s Classroom has new, topical Bible reading plans that are FREE instant downloads, and no email is required.
Is it important to read the Bible?
The Bible is a living document that nourishes our souls. Scripture often refers to itself as a type of food. Consider these passages:
- Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)
- I (Jesus) am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. (John 6:35)
- Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:6)
- As newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation. (1 Peter 2:2)
These are only a few of the Bible verses that emphasize the necessity for daily Bible reading in our lives. We need it to live and grow spiritually. To neglect it will result in spiritual weakness and lack of growth. The Creator’s classroom wants to help you in that endeavor, with these Free Topical Bible Reading Plans.
Start your day with God
Morning Bible verses set the tone for the whole day. It helps us remember that whatever we have to tackle, we are not doing it alone. The book of Lamentations tells us that God’s mercies and compassions are new every morning. He remembers we are weak and He wants to give us strength for the day. He remembers that we were formed from dust and are dependant on Him.(Lamentations 3:22-23, Isaiah 40:31, Psalm 103:14)
Morning is a great time to ask, “what is God’s message for me today?” It is a good time to ask for God’s wisdom in everything we do throughout the rest of our day.

June Topical Bible Reading Plan: Run To The father
June is when we celebrate fathers. Unfortunately, not everyone grew up with a loving, nurturing dad. Regardless of what your childhood experience was, let me assure you that God is the perfect Father. The Biblical phrase, “Abba Father”, is a term of endearment, meaning, “Papa”. God is everything we ever wanted in a dad. We need to run to Him, the one who loves us more than the best father here on earth.
For those who have unpleasant memories of life with their human father, this article may help you. God is not like your father. You will find in “Forgive your parents, heal yourself” why forgiving has nothing to do with your dad and everything to do about you. Forgiveness does not mean you have to be friends with someone who hurt you. It does not condone their bad behavior. Forgiveness sets you free.
