Daily Bible Reading “Be Wise” (Proverbs 8:32-36)

Be Wise

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:

Proverbs 8:32-36

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 their 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.

Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. – Proverbs 8:32

Daily Bible Reading “The Wise Listen to Advice” (Proverbs 12:12-16)

Proverbs 12 The Wise Listen to AdviceThe Wise Listen to Advice

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 12:12-16. In this Scripture we are reminded that the wicked desire the snare of evil men: but the root of the righteous yields fruit.

We can choose the way of the wicked and end up in some sort of trouble or we can choose the way of the righteous and bare good fruit.

The wicked is caught by the transgression of his lips: but the righteous will depart from trouble.

A person will be satisfied with good by the fruit of their mouth: and the dealing of a person’s hands will be returned to to them.

The way the foolish seems right to them: but the wise listen to advice.

A fool’s anger is always known: but a cautious man conceals shame.

Have you ever known someone who refused to listen to any advice that you tried to give them? They want to do things their own way even though you warn them that they are going to get in trouble. After a while you have to let people learn for themselves if they refuse to take advice or instruction.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 12:12-16

12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.
13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.
15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
16 A fool’s wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we see the differences between a wise person and a foolish person. Help us to choose to be wise and not foolish. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
