Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 20:11-19. As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that even a child is known by their deeds, whether their work is pure, and whether it is right. If the Bible says this about a child, how much more are we as adults known by our actions. We all will have to give an account for our actions.
The LORD has made both the hearing ear, and the seeing eye. Thank you God for ears that hear and eyes that see your beautiful creation.
Those who love sleep come to poverty; open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread.
The buyer declares, “It is bad,” but when they have gone their way, then they boast.
There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
Take his garment as surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
Bread of deceit is sweet to a person; but afterwards their mouth will be filled with gravel.
Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
Those who go about as talebearers reveal secrets: therefore don’t meddle with those who flatter with their lips.
Daily Bible Reading:
11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
13 Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
14 It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.
15 There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
16 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.
Things to think about:
- What does this Scripture say we are known by?
- Why should we seek counsel?
- What does this Scripture say about a talebearer?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that even a child is known by their deeds. Help us to be aware of this and keep watch over ourselves and the things that we do. Help us to follow Your ways and not the ways of the world. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 by Deborah H. Bateman is part of the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 contains thirty-one Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or groups.
