I realize that Project 345 is designed for readings during the week and weekends are for make up. But I'm already seeing they give us 2 days off in the first week! So, for the weekends I'll provide bonus readings from Psalms and Proverbs. They're optional, use the time to catch up on the New Testament readings if you missed any. But remember the goal is to read a portion of the Bible EVERY day.
Here's a link to Proverbs 1 in the New Living Translation: http://bible.us/Prov1.1.NLT
The reason I picked this chapter as well as this whole project can be found in the first 4 verses:
1 These are the proverbs of Solomon, David’s son, king of Israel.2 Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise.
3 Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives,to help them do what is right, just, and fair.
4 These proverbs will give insight to the simple, knowledge and discernment to the young
The writer is specifically talking about the Proverbs, but I don't think I'm going out on a limb when I say the entire Bible is here to teach us wisdom, discipline, and insights.
Words to live by...
