Daily Bible Reading “Get Wisdom” (Proverbs 4:1-13)

Get Wisdom

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 4:1-13. Solomon says, “Hear, you children, the instruction of a father, and listen to learn understanding. I give you good instruction, don’t forsake my direction.”

I was my father’s son, tender and beloved in the sight of my mother. He taught me well, and said to me, Let your heart attain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

Get wisdom, get understanding: don’t forget it; don’t stray from the words of my mouth.

Don’t abandon wisdom, she will protect you: love her, and she will keep you.

Wisdom is the first thing; so acquire wisdom: and with all your acquisitions get intelligence.

Exalt wisdom, and it will promote you: it will bring you honor, when you embrace it.

Wisdom will give to your head a wreath of favor: it will give you a crown of glory.

Listen, my son, and receive my words; and you will add many years to your life.

Solomon says, “I have taught you the ways of wisdom; I have led you on the right paths. When you go, your steps won’t be distressed; and when you run, you won’t fall.”

Hold on to instruction; don’t let go: guard her; she is your life.

As children, our parents taught us many things. It is important that we pass down the wisdom of our parents to our children.

As we learned earlier in Proverbs, wisdom comes from the LORD. We need to pass down what we have learned from the Bible to our children as well. Much of what is taught in Proverbs are good godly principles to live our lives by.

In this Scripture, Solomon is trying to impress the importance of holding on to the wisdom that he has been taught by his father as his way of life. He knows the dangers of straying from the ways of the LORD. He wants his son to live a good life, as we wish for our children and grandchildren as well.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 4:1-13

1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
3 For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

 

Things to think about:

  • What is the importance of wisdom in our lives?
  • What is the importance of passing down wisdom to our children?
  • What is the importance of understanding?
  • How can we get wisdom?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we learn the importance of attaining wisdom and abiding by what we learn. Help us to make wise decisions. Help us to pass down the wisdom we have learned in this life to our children and grandchildren. Guard our hearts and minds. 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.

Featured Book: New Release

psalms part 1-25The Book of Psalms: Part 1 Chapters 1-30

by Deborah H. Bateman

Only 99 cents for a limited introductory offer

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.

Daily Bible Reading “Get Wisdom” (Proverbs 16:10-17)

Proverbs 16 16 Wisdom_2Get Wisdom

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 16:10-17. The verse I chose to focus on in this passage of Scripture is verse 16 which says, “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!”

A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth does not transgress in judgment.

A just weight and balance are the LORD’S: all the weights of the bag are his work.

It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love those who speak right.

The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.

In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain.

How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: those who keep their way preserve their soul.

One of the benefits of studying the book of Proverbs is to get wisdom. There are tried and true sayings and principals shared in this book.

Wisdom and understanding are more treasured than gold or silver. Wisdom and understanding come from the LORD.

You could be wealthy, but be foolish, and what good is the wealth to you. There are many people who are wealthy that make foolish decisions.

Learning wisdom from the Word of God will help you to make right decisions in your life. Turning your life over to God and letting Him direct your path will lead to a life of victory.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 16:10

10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
11 A just weight and balance are the LORD’S: all the weights of the bag are his work.
12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.
15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

 

Things to think about:

  • Who is the righteous judge?
  • What did we learn in this Scripture about kings?
  • Why are wisdom and understanding more valuable than gold?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read and study this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that wisdom and understanding are more valuable than gold or silver. Help us to seek after wisdom from Your Word. Help us to make right decisions and follow Your ways. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
