A Proverb A Day

One of the simplest and useful ways to read the Bible can be found through a daily visit to the book of Proverbs. There is a treasure trove of wisdom on a wide variety of subjects and it never gets old.  Since there are 31 chapters in Proverbs you can very simply read one each day throughout the course of one month.  I have done this for years, on and off, and have always been blessed.  God's Word is like that isn't it?!  In His providence we are often guided to a passage that speaks to us, "right where we live."

On another very good blog I discovered some helpful insights for reading and applying Proverbs.  Please take minute to read them, I think they will bring some clarity too. You can find them here.

Of course there are 65 other books contained in God's Word and all of them are "profitable" for our daily use.  However, it is easy to get stuck in our studies or to be unsure of where to go next.  So perhaps you would benefit from a proverb a day.  Start now and plan to read a chapter in Proverbs every day for the next month.  Let me know how it goes.
