I was listening to K-Love radio yesterday in the car, and they have issued a challenge to listeners, to read one chapter of Proverbs each day in October. I've done this before, but always in a hurry, as if it is an assignment I must get accomplished. Sometimes it would sink in a little, but most times I just read through it at break neck speed and went on my merry way. This time I'm going to take my time and try to absorb as much as possible.
I started last night, and already the old debil tried to mess with me. I shouldn't have waiting until bedtime, but I do that frequently with no problem. Last night my eyes were giving me fits, watering, burning, blurry. Wow, talk about major warfare. There must be something really important God wants to tell me in Proverbs. I'm going to re-read the first chapter along with the second chapter today and see if I missed catching something important.
I may, from time to time, post little snippets of verses that stuck out to me. Last night even with fighting my eyes, I was struck by:
*Fools despise wisdom and discipline; Prov 1:7
(Wisdom is knowing the will of God, and discipline is the doing of it...right?)
What do you say gentle readers? Are you up for a little 31 day challenge with me? Let me know if you are.
