Today is a great day to begin reading through Proverbs. Many of you have been doing this over the last several weeks and are beginning to see Life Transformation as you read the Bible looking for the principles of God that are always at work.
Proverbs is the book of wisdom. It is packed full of the principles that God created the universe to operate on. His principles are working in our daily lives, in fact, every decision we make throughout our days intersects with God’s principles. The more we know and understand them the more we will make decisions that are in His will and the more we will live the purpose and plan He has for us – remember – His plan for you is good! (Jer 29:11)
Here’s how it works, it’s so simple. There are 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs. Today is the 1st of December. December just happens to have 31 days in it. Reading one chapter a day (about 5 min. worth of reading) will get you systematically through the entire book before the New Year.
Take five min and get started on this all new path to discovering the principles that God has for us to live by. I love how they begin in chapter 1 with the purpose of the Proverbs:
“…(to)teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise…to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives…” Prov 1:2-3 (NLT)
