Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 12:1-4. This Scripture tells us whoever loves instruction loves knowledge: but those who hate correction are foolish.
Through God’s Word we can find the knowledge and instruction that we need to live victoriously in this life. If we ignore His principles and go about living our own way we will not find victory.
The Scripture tells us that a good person obtains favor with the LORD: but a person of wicked devices will be condemned.
Those who seek to live good godly lives will find favor with the LORD, but those who scheme and choose to live wicked lives will be condemned.
We are reminded that no one can be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous will not be moved.
The righteous will be rooted and grounded in the Word of God. They will stand strong when the storms of life come their way. But those who choose to live a wicked lifestyle won’t have anything to hold onto when the storms of life come their way.
We are told that a virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but a wife who causes her husband shame is like decay in his body.
Virtuous women are a blessing to their husband, but those who live vicariously are a shame to their husband.
God has called us to be strong women of faith who strive to live godly lives even as the enemy tries everything in his power to bring us down. We have to hold onto Jesus and gather our strength from Him to help us fight the battles of this life.
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
Daily Bible Reading:
1 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.
2 A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.
3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
Things to think about:
- How can knowledge and instruction help us to live victorious lives?
- What happens to those who despise instruction?
- How does being rooted and grounded in the Word of God help us to live victoriously?
- What is a virtuous woman to her husband?
- What does a shameful woman do to her husband?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we realize that there are those who love knowledge and instruction and there are those who detest it. Help us to realize that through Your Word we can find the knowledge and instruction that we need to live a victorious life. Give us the strength we need when the toils of this life come against us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
