When I was a kid, I loved the book of Proverbs. I have a notebook I started on my own from about age twelve where I started a topical list of all the different people in Proverbs (I’m sure I got the idea from a sermon somewhere) and the variety of topics. It was during this time that I first really became interested in wisdom. You’ve probably heard that there’s 31 chapters in Proverbs, so it’s easy to read one chapter a day as part of your Bible reading time.
I haven’t done that in awhile. I guess I’ve been reading other things. But I’ve been reading it for the last week, and have been challenged and nourished by what I’ve found. I keep seeing verses that apply to situations I’ve seen at my household, and I know that regular reading will help me remember them when those situations arise again. So I think I’m going to keep at it.
