a simple plan for reading the bible this year

And it is not original with me: divide the psalms into 30 segments, corresponding to the days of the month (Psalm 1-5 on day one, Psalm 6-10 on day two, etc.). Write in Day 1, in your Bible on the first Psalm, Day 2 on the sixth psalm. You will end up writing Day 30 on Psalm 146. Read five psalms each day, along with one proverb. In addition, sometime during each month read the Sermon on the Mount. I am using a copy of The Message for this purpose.

There are other good ways to read the Bible, and of course this omits a great deal. But I hope to follow this path in 2009.
