What Danica McKellar Learned from Reading through the Bible in a Year

Actress Danica McKellar recently shared some lessons she’s learned after reading the Bible in its entirety in a year.

“For me, reading the Bible, I just have to say, I felt so comforted,” McKellar said. “And oddly so, even during the chapters like getting through Job, you know, and the poor guy, he’s suffering and his friends are like, ‘Yeah, well, it’s probably your fault. It’s something you did.'” 

As reported by Faithwire, McKellar used “The Bible Recap” plan in reading the Bible chronologically in a year. One of the most important lessons she learned is the importance of humility.

“There’s this theme in the Bible of ego versus humility, and I want to say even more so than the story of good versus evil, although that is definitely in there,” McKellar said. “From the human’s point of view, it feels like the lesson we’re supposed to learn is about ego versus humility and the way to live our lives in humility. And it doesn’t mean that anything is being taken away. Just the opposite.”

She noted that the Bible encourages walking in humility as well as the dangers of chasing after the wrong things.

“The humility becomes the reward,” McKellar said. “If I can get in touch with humility… God floods in and it just feels amazing.”

McKellar, who starred in The Wonder Years, turned to Christianity over the past year-and-a-half.

“I feel so blessed… people have said, ‘Oh, you are so bold,’” McKellar said of her willingness to discuss her beliefs. “It doesn’t feel like bold. It doesn’t feel like it requires courage or anything… When you experience something that is so beautiful and so wonderful and so life-changing, you want everyone to feel that.”

The actress recently starred in the film A Royal Date for Christmas, through the faith-based, family network Great American Family.
