O’er all those wide extended plains / Shines one eternal day; There God the Son forever reigns / And scatters night away.

Reading through the Bible
For the last year I have been reading Scripture in a more disciplined way than ever before in my life — largely because the method I've chosen requires minimal discipline. Scripture is fed to me daily. I've been using one of the reading plans provided at the ESV site — there are twelve options. My choice has been The Book of Common Prayer Daily Office Lectionary which "includes readings from four sections of the Bible each day: the Psalms and Wisdom Literature, Pentateuch and History of Israel, Chronicles and Prophets, and Gospels and Epistles" and can be received either by RSS feed or by email [I use the RSS feed]. It arrives early in the morning and reading it is among the first things I do regardless of when I arise.
Almost all of the other plans can be received in the same ways.
Even if you don't suffer from my tendency to slack off you might find this service useful.
