One of the things we struggle with is the daily reading of scriptures. I have found two different methods to assist with reading scripture on a regular basis.
The first one is a based on an old pdf for reading the Orthodox Study Bible in a year. The pdf is a chart for reading the Old Testament, the Psalms, the Proverbs, and the New Testament each day. I have used this method in the past and it does work. You do not be a slave to the chart. I found after a month or so I would be out of sync with the chart. I would read more of one part than another. Just simply mark the sections off where you have read ahead and the chart still works. The chart can be downloaded at
The second method I found was a method Fr. John Whiteford wrote about on his blog,
You simply make six bookmarks. One for the Pentateuch, the History books of the Old Testament, one for the Wisdom books of the OT, one for the Prophets of the Old Testament, one for the Gospels, and one for the remaining books of New Testament. You read read a chapter for each section every day and in roughly a year you will get through the Bible. Again you don't need to be a slave to the method. You may read more for one section on any given day and that is OK. The goal is to read six chapters a day.
