Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 7:1-5. Solomon tells his son, “My son, keep my words, and treasure my commandments. Keep my commandments, and live; and my instruction as the apple of your eye.”
Tie them around your fingers; write them on the table of your heart. Say to wisdom, “You are my sister;” and call understanding your relative. They will keep you from the adulterous woman, from the stranger who flatters with her words.
The pupil is considered to be the apple of the eye. Solomon is reminding us if we keep our focus on the right things, the good things that we have been taught by our parents and in the Word of God; we are less likely to veer off the good path of life to the path of sin and destruction.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
Things to think about:
- What does Solomon tell his son to do with the things he has taught him?
- What does Solomon tell his son to call wisdom?
- What does Solomon tell his son to call understanding?
- Why does Solomon say to keep wisdom and understanding close to you?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture from Proverbs we are reminded to keep wisdom and understanding close to us. Help us to keep the good things that we have been taught by our parents and from the Bible as the focus of our eyes and heart so that we might live the way You would have us to. Help us not to get distracted by the ways of this world. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
