31 Days of Wisdom | Day 14

Reading for today: Proverbs 14:1-35 Big lesson here: don’t be quick to judge a circumstance. WAIT until you have all the FACTS and not all the opinions, including your own. When you are quick to come to a conclusion, the Bible says here that it “exalts folly” meaning it makes you look like a fool. […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 13

Reading for today: Proverbs 13:1-25 Don’t these verses just make you giggle! We struggle and fight to get more and more money and what it ends up causing us is more and more problems. Now, don’t get Solomon wrong, he was the richest man on the face of the earth so he wasn’t against money. […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 12

Reading for today: Proverbs 12:1-28 Pretty plain and simple, huh? The writer of the proverbs invites us to celebrate the painful act of discipline. This seems weird doesn’t it? That’s like saying, “Be excited about your house being foreclosed on!!” It just doesn’t line up with our way of response. But like it says, it’s […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 11

Reading for today: Proverbs 11:1-31 “Did you hear…?” These three little words have probably destroyed more lives than all the battles of the world combined. The Bible in the book of James calls the tongue the uncontrollable beast, and I have found that to be a very fitting description. It seems like the harder we […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 10

Reading for today: Proverbs 10:1-32 One of my favorite names of God is “Yahewh-jireh”, which means “the Lord, our provider.” God has provided in so many ways for us. If you are reading this, you probably have a roof over your head, food to eat, clothes to wear, a few dollars in your pocket, and […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 9

Reading for today: Proverbs 9:1-18 How do you respond when people correct or criticize you? Our response reveals a tremendous amount about ourselves. Do you react bitterly and upset, or are you thankful that someone cared enough to show you and error in your ways? Do you take what people say to heart and grow […]

31 Days of Wisdom | Day 8

Reading for today: Proverbs 8:1-36 When I think about this verse, I think about priorities. Is getting wisdom and seeking understanding in God’s Word a priority to you? Is it more important than money? The obvious answer to that last questions would be, “No way!  Does wisdom pay the bills!?” But God calls us to, […]
