Reading for today: Proverbs 25:1-28 A sign of maturity, both spiritual an otherwise, is a person who keeps their commitments. Are you constantly backing out of your responsibilities or falling short of fulfilling your promises? You need to do two things; stop making commitments you can’t keep and start keeping the commitments you do make. […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 24

Reading for today: Proverbs 24:1-34 Stay strong. Persevere. Never give up. We have all heard these encouraging words many times, but let’s face it: we give up way too easily. “It’s too hard, no fun, too painful, I have to give up too much”, etc. But here is a call to not faint in the […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 23

Reading for today: Proverbs 23:1-35 It is often very tiring to do the right thing, especially when it ends up costing you. I can think of one particular time when I was really down in the dumps because I was taking so much heat for doing the right thing. I was confiding in a close […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 22

Reading for today: Proverbs 22:1-29 Now that we know the reward, how do we become humble? Just in the simple act of us proclaiming “I am a humble person” or “I will become humble” is just the opposite of humility. But if you become desperate to glorify God and not yourself (John 3:30), you will […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 21

Reading for today: Proverbs 21:1-31 I know, I know, but I just had to put it in! Think about the bigger picture, have you ever been around someone that was constantly on your back. We often cast blame on the women in our lives for doing this, but men aren’t pure as the snow in […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 20

Reading for today: Proverbs 20:1-30 Are your words speaking louder than your actions? This verse reminds us of quite the opposite. That the actions of a faithful man speaks louder than his words. Too many times we walk around with a lot of “face talk.” Just words that mean nothing. Promises that we have no […]
