Grab a Fork Reading Plan | Week 1 | Day 1

We’re taking a break from our Acts Reading Plan for the next three weeks as we build off the weekend message series “Grab A Fork.” This week we will be looking at how to read the Bible and encouraging you to dig in for yourself!


Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Ask God to open your eyes to his word as you read it today. Ask Him to guide you where you are confused or in the dark on how to move forward.

Bible Reading: Psalm 1

Read these verses out loud three times slowly.

Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

Reflection & Questions

Look back at the Psalm and answer these questions:

      1. What phrase or words stick out to you? Why?
      2. What questions do you have after reading it?
      3. Do you meditate on Scripture? How do you know?
      4. What does the blessed man do? What does that look like today?
      5. What happens to the blessed man?

In reading the Psalm three times and answering these questions, you have meditated on scripture. This is what the blessed person does. They meditate on God’s Word. Check out this video on why meditation is so important when it comes to the Bible:

This week in our readings, we are going to explore some different ways to meditate on scripture.

      1. What’s the difference between reading the Bible and meditation on it?
      2. Do you meditate on Scripture? How do you know?


Talk to God in response to the reading today.
