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.

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.
