Read the Bible in 2006

I could say, "Read the Bible in 2006." Or, I could say, "Get God's wisdom for your life." Or, I could say, "Find comfort for your soul." Or, I could say, "Expand your view of who God is and what He can do in your life." No matter how I said it, I'd be saying the same thing. So, let me say it specifically:

Let's as a church read one chapter of Proverbs and one Psalm every day in 2006.

The Proverbs plan is a simple, no-guilt plan. On the first day of the month read the first chapter of Proverbs. On the second day, read the second chapter. On the third day, read the third chapter. . . etc.. There are 31 chapters in Proverbs. So you'll read it 12 times. There is more wisdom in that book than can be gained in 12 readings.

The Psalms reading plan is equally simple there are 150 chapters. Accounting for more than two months of missing (ouch!) you can read the book of Psalms twice in the year. You will find your heart enriched by God's inspired song book.

If you already have a personal Bible reading program, consider adding this as a family reading program. It should only take less than 10 minutes a day to read aloud.

Wouldn't it be great to be talking with people from church and be able to reference something you know they are reading?!
