Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 10:1-8. The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a glad father: but a foolish son is the sorrow of his mother. Treasures of wickedness will profit you nothing: but righteousness delivers from death.
The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to be hungry: but he casts away the desire of the wicked.
He becomes poor that deals with a deceitful hand: but the hand of the diligent prospers.
He that gathers in summer is a wise son: but he that sleeps in harvest is a son that causes shame.
Blessings are on the head of the righteous: but violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked will rot. The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a mouthy fool will fall.
Notice how Solomon compares the wise and the foolish. The wise receive the blessings and the foolish fall into destruction.

Things to think about:
- What is the difference between a wise child and a foolish son or daughter?
- Who is it that gathers in harvest?
- What happens to those who are too lazy to gather in the time of harvest?
- What are some of the other comparisons mentioned between the wise person and the foolish person?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture where Solomon compares a wise person with a wicked person help us to realize the difference. Help us to be wise and diligent. Help us not to be as those who are wicked. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
