Summer officially started last week. Do you have plans? I’m sure you do. More specifically, do you have plans to read the bible a bit more than your usual devotions time reading? If you don’t, I would like to suggest a plan.
The plan I would like to suggest is reading the Psalms and book of Proverbs twice over the summer, once in July and once in August. There is a format to follow that goes like this – July 1 – read Psalm 1, 31, 61, 91, 121 and Proverbs 1. You start with the date and then add 30 for the Psalms, for example, today is June 27, read Psalm 27, 57, 87, 117, 147 and Proverbs 27. Just remember: the date + 30.
If you wanted to double check you got it correct, here is a link to the guide of the daily reading - http://storage.cloversites.com/atlantametropolitancathedral/documents/30%20Day%20Psalm%20-%20Pr_2.pdf
You can move Psalm 119 from day 29 to 31 so that on the 31styour reading time is similar to other days.
If you miss a day, that’s okay. Start with the current day’s reading and if you have time and you want to catch up, read what you’ve missed.
Looking forward to seeing how many of you try this as part of your summer plans.
