So we’ve completed our first lap around Proverbs: 31 chapters in 31 days. If you missed a day in our journey, I would encourage you to go back and read the post for that day. Or, if you’d prefer, join me on the second lap as we start over and make our way back through this amazing book of wisdom each day over the course of this new month.
I would also recommend that you do the assignments I’ve provided at the end of each blog post. The reason I offer these simple activities is to help us make the journey from being not merely hearers of the Word, but becoming doers of the Word, as James 1:22 says. Making the effort and taking practical steps to actually put God’s Word into action may be the difference in merely knowing the Bible (there are lots of people in that category) and knowing God. God has revealed himself in the Bible, but knowing him comes not just from stuffing more knowledge into our heads, but by opening our hearts and engaging our hands as well.
Again, I hope you will join me in this journey through the Book of Wisdom. As the old preacher said, “A Proverb a day keeps sin at bay!”
Soli Deo Gloria,
