Current Bible Reading Plan

At the turn of the year, Ligonier Ministries posted a helpful list of Bible reading plans. One of those plans is a through-the-New Testament plan called the 5x5x5 plan.

The plan calls for a chapter a day, five days a week. The two off-days are for reflection and/or catch-up. It’s not quite as daunting as a through-the-Bible-in-a-year plan (although those are doable as well).

I modified the plan to include reading through the Psalms and Proverbs. Reading two Psalms a day (and breaking up Psalm 119 into four days) will take you through all 150 Psalms four times in a year. Proverbs has 31 chapters, which works out to a chapter a day most months.

The goal of repeating the Psalms and Proverbs so many times was to become acquainted with and steeped in these books. Since Proverbs calls us to pursue wisdom fervently, then the prolonged stay there can’t help but be beneficial. And since the Psalms are the inspired songs of God’s people, walking back and forth through them will hopefully cause them to seep into the way I think and pray and sing and speak and write.

Here is a PDF of the reading plan. You can print it out double-sided, fold it in half like a book, and it will line up properly. I hope it’s helpful.
