Daily Bible Reading “Even a Child is Known by Their Deeds” (Proverbs 20:11-19)

Proverbs 20 11Even a Child is Known by Their Deeds

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:

Proverbs 20:11-19

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.

Daily Bible Reading “Wine is a Mocker” (Proverbs 20:1-10)

Proverbs 20 1Wine is a Mocker

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 20:1-10. As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that wine is a mocker, intoxicating drinks cause commotion: and those who are deceived by them are not wise. Why does the Scripture say this about wine and other intoxicating drinks?

Getting intoxicated by drinking too much wine or other alcoholic beverages can cause people to make bad decisions, which can lead to other problems.

Making a habit of drinking too much on a regular basis can lead to alcoholism, which can cause all kinds of trouble in a person’s life.

Let’s look at the other Scriptures from this passage:

The fear of a king is like a roaring lion: whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own soul.

It is an honor for a person to cease from controversy: but every fool will be meddling.

A lazy person who refuses to plow because of the cold; will be begging at the time of harvest, because they have no food to eat.

Counsel in the heart of a person is like deep water; but a person of understanding can draw it out. Many times the answers to our lives are hidden deep inside of us, but a good counselor can help draw the answers to our life situations out of us.

Most people will proclaim their own goodness: but who can find a faithful person?

The righteous person walks in integrity: their children are blessed after them.

A king who sits on the throne of judgment scatters away evil with his eyes.

Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin? We can’t cleanse our own heart. Our heart can only be made pure by the cleansing of the blood of Jesus.

In the Old Testament people would sacrifice animals for their sin. But, since Jesus died on the cross, He became our sacrifice. Only through accepting Him as our Savior can our hearts be truly cleansed from sin.

Divers weights, and divers measures, both are an abomination to the LORD.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 20:1-10

1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
2 The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.
3 It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.
4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.
6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
8 A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.
9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
10 Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.

 

Things to think about:

  • What does this Scripture say about wine and other strong drinks?
  • What does this Scripture say will happen to a lazy person?
  • Has your heart been cleansed from sin by the blood of Jesus?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that wine is a mocker and intoxicating drinks cause commotion. Help us not to be deceived by it. Thank You for Your Son, Jesus, who is the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “The Fear of the LORD” (Proverbs 19:23-29)

 Proverbs 19 23The Fear of the LORD

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 19:23-29. In this Scripture we are told that the fear of the LORD tends to life: and those who have it will be satisfied; they won’t be visited with evil. What does it mean to have the fear of the LORD?

I think it means to reverence Him, to respect Him, to honor Him. Like a child should respect and honor their parents we should show our respect to the LORD. We should honor Him as an authority in our lives.

A lazy person hides their hand in their bowl, and will not even bring it to their mouth again.

Strike a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that has understanding, and they will gain knowledge.

Those who waste their father, and chase away their mother, is a child who causes shame, and brings reproach.

Stop listening to the instruction that causes you to stray from the words of knowledge. We should not listen to any information that leads us away from the truth of the Word of God.

An ungodly witness scorns judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.

Judgments are prepared for mockers, and stripes for the back of fools.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 19:23-29

23 The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
24 A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
29 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.

 

Things to think about:

  • How does having the fear of the LORD affect our life?
  • What does a child do that is disobedient to their parents?
  • What does this Scripture say about a lazy person?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that the fear of the LORD tends to life and those who have it will be satisfied. Help us to fear and reverence You as our heavenly Father. Lead, guide, and direct in our lives. Help us to be what You would have us to be. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Keep the Commandments” (Proverbs 19:16-22)

Proverbs 19 16 He who keeps the commandmentsKeep the Commandments

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 19:16-22. In this Scripture we are reminded that those who keep the commandments keep their own soul; but those who despise their ways will die.

Those who have pity on the poor lend to the LORD; and that which they have given He will repay them.

Chasten your child while there is hope, and don’t let your soul spare for their crying. It is important that we discipline our children while they are young. We can’t wait until they are grown to try to teach them right from wrong.

A person of great wrath will suffer punishment: if you deliver them, you must do it again.

Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days. Counsel and instruction are important to our overall development.

There are many devices in a person’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, will stand.

The desire of a person is their kindness: and it is better to be a poor person than a liar.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 19:16-22

16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.
20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
22 The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.

 

Things to think about:

  • What does this Scripture say about those who keep the commandments?
  • How does the LORD feel about us giving to the poor?
  • Why is it important for us to correct our children while they are young?
  • Why is it important to receive counsel and instruction?
  • Though there are many things in our hearts, what is the one thing that will stand?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read and study this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that those who keep the commandments keep their own soul. Help us to study Your Word and learn Your ways so that we may live according to Your will. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Get Wisdom” (Proverbs 19:8-15)

 proverbs-19-8 He who gets wisdomGet Wisdom

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 19:8-15. In this Scripture we are reminded that those who get wisdom love their own soul: those who cherish understanding will prosper.

A false witness will not go unpunished, and those who speak lies will perish. The truth will eventually come out.

Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

The discretion of a person defers their anger; and it is their glory to overlook a transgression.

The king’s wrath is like a roaring lion; but his favor is like dew drops spread over the grass.

A foolish child is the calamity of their father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.

House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.

Laziness casts into a deep sleep; and an idle soul goes hungry.

Wisdom and understanding are not something that everybody has. It is something to be sought after. We can gain insight and wisdom through studying God’s Word.

We should always be in a state of learning. We should always seek to gain wisdom and knowledge. Life is a continual process of learning, both from our experiences and from constantly studying. We can’t expect wisdom to come knocking on our door. We have to pursue wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 19:8-15

8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
12 The king’s wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.
13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
14 House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.

 

Things to think about:

  •  What does this Scripture say about those who get wisdom?
  • What do we learn about a false witness in this Scripture?

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded those who get wisdom love their own soul. Help us to seek Your wisdom as we study Your Word and learn Your ways. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
