Another month is coming to a close which means it’s time for a new Bible reading plan. Since Valentine’s Day is in February, I have chosen Bible verses that focus on God’s love.
You can download a copy of this printable Bible reading plan by clicking the link below.
During January I shared each verse to my Facebook page in a new format, and the response has been great. It is exciting to have so many people being encouraged by Scripture each day. Be sure to follow me there so you don’t miss out.
While you can look up each of the passages listed on the printable I created, I thought it might be helpful to list the verses here as well. Most of the verses below are from the NIV version, but a few are from the NKJV and NLT. You can use whichever version you prefer.
Digging into Scripture to decide which verses to share in February was a blessing. I pray these verses will be a blessing to you as well.
