A Word from the Wise

Reading through the book of Proverbs each month can contribute to a high wisdom quotient. It’s a word from the Wise–God–from the lips of the wisest man to live–Solomon.

Like everything else, it can become humdrum, though. We stop digesting the words because we’ve read it all before. As they say, familiarity breeds contempt.

That’s one reason I haven’t read through Proverbs in a long time.

But YouVersion had a reading plan to read through the book in thirty-one days. I saved it to my list of plans I’d be interested in completing some time, and there it sat.

Until March 2022. That’s when I decided it was time to read through this highly accessible and extremely useful book of the Bible.

If you haven’t read through the book in some time, I recommend reading one chapter per day and you’ll get through it in a month. Start May 1 since May is one of the 31-day months on our calendar.

You’ll find insightful advice about family life.

There is a multitude of things said about listening and learning. But make sure the source is a wise one beforehand.

Solomon penned advice on how to be a good friend.

And he knew the importance of being humble.

No matter what subject you’re seeking advice on, it’s likely you can find insight in this incredible book.

God’s Word amazes me. I’m thankful he inspired Solomon to record this wealth of wisdom so I can learn from it thousands of years later.

What bit of wisdom can it impart to you today?
