Psalm 37

There’s a Bible reading plan where you read five Psalms and one chapter of Proverbs every day for a month. There’s something to be said for how worshipful and (sometimes brutally) honest the Psalms are. Originally, I believe the Psalms were meant to be sung. It’s a kind of hymnal of the Old Testament. But if you read them all, you will encompass the whole of the human experience with all its emotions. I think how it goes is you read a Psalm, then add 30 to get the next Psalm, and so forth. For example, today you would read Psalm 25, 55, 85, 115, and 145. I suppose the extra day is for Psalm 119 with its 176 verses.

The Proverbs are a collection of the wisdom sayings of King Solomon covering a variety of topics. If you read one chapter of Proverbs a day, you will cover all 31 chapters in a month. Some may seem more relevant to our day and age than others, but I truly believe that God speaks through all of them if you read in a prayerful and intentional manner.

The best part is that you don’t have to wait until November 1 to start. You can begin at any part of the month, if you want. Here’s the link if you want more informaton:
