Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 8:32-36. In this Scripture we find a call to listen. Not only to listen, but to hear and seek. Seek wisdom and seek the LORD.
Listen to me, you children: blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and don’t refuse it.
Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
Whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from the LORD. But those who sin against me wrongs their own soul: all those who hate me love death.
We can look at this two ways. First, as those who find wisdom find life and those who hate instruction find the path to destruction. Do you seek wisdom?
Secondly, and most importantly, as God speaking and reminding us that those who seek Him and find Him through a relationship with His son, Jesus Christ, will have life eternal. But, those who hate Him will suffer eternal death. Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior?
Daily Bible Reading:
32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
Things to think about:
- What are we called to do in this Scripture?
- What do we find if we seek?
- What is the result of not seeking wisdom?
- What is the result for those who refuse Jesus as Savior?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture we realize that we should be seeking wisdom from above. We should be seeking Jesus. Help us to find wisdom, but more importantly help us to find a lasting eternal relationship with You through Your son, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
