A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, To such as are pure in heart. But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; My steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the boastful, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no pangs in their death, But their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as other men, Nor are they plagued like other men.
It is so, so easy to be envious of the boastful and the prosperity of the wicked. Some handsome dude strutting through town, kicking small dogs and shoving old ladies out into traffic when he thinks no one is looking.
But Asaph (and I) both know that the eyes of the LORD are in a thousand places. And that He calls us to be his representatives wherever we go. We are His Ambassadors of Reconciliation to all people and in His name.

Morning Psalm 14, Noon Psalm 119:1-8, Evening Psalm 60.
Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.
I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
