Join me, starting tomorrow, as we journey through the book of Proverbs over the next 31 consecutive days
The purpose of Proverbs is to teach us how to attain wisdom through knowledge and understanding, because there is a vast difference with just having facts, compared to applying those facts to our lives!
Each day, I will give you a verse that spoke to me through each chapter, but the ”challenge” is for you to read that one chapter, each day (I.e: 2nd July read Proverbs 2; or, 15th July read Proverbs 15 etc.) and then “listen” to the thoughts and lessons from the worlds wisest man; to ultimately, journey with God to apply these lessons to your life
A tip to remember – usually, proverbs are written in the form of “couplets” which are instructed in three ways:
1) Contrasting – meaning and application come from the contrast between the two statements of the proverb (keyword: but)
2) Comparing – meaning and application come from the comparison between the two statements of the proverb (keywords: as/so/better/than)
3) Complementing – meaning and application come from the way the second statement complements the first (keyword: and)
I love the mega-themes within this amazing book because as we journey together, we will cover topics such as wisdom, our relationships, our speech, our work, and our successes
Friends, what the book of Psalms is to our prayer and devotional life, the book of Proverbs is to our daily life
The book of Proverbs focuses on God (which is why I love it) – His character, works, and blessings – and also tells us how we can live with a closer relationship to Him
So, I am excited to have you on this journey, and for you to share how God opens your eyes to His wisdom for your life
See you tomorrow for chapter one!
