When I was a student in Bible College, one of my professors encouraged us to read through the Psalms and the Proverbs each month. I listened to his wisdom and for most of the last 35 years I have read 5 Psalms and 1 chapter of Proverbs each day. As I have read the Psalms and the Proverbs, they have become treasured friends and a wonderful source of encouragement, direction, and strength. I love David’s heart for his God and Solomon’s concise wisdom for the day. I am in awe of the power of the words of David and Solomon inspired by God 3000 years ago to touch my heart today. I would encourage you to read through the Psalms and the Proverbs and see how God touches and changes your heart.
I am also reading through the Bible this year from a chronological Bible. This is a different format than I have used before and I am looking forward to the adventure of reading the complete consolidated story of the Bible.
