June 17, 2021, DAY 166: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Proverbs 4

June 17, 2021


Today our journey through the book of Proverbs tells us of the importance of understanding and following wisdom.

Ask God for His understanding of Proverbs 4. Read Proverbs 4. Let’s journey!

King Solomon, son of King David, is believed to be the wisest man who ever lived, with the exception of Jesus Christ. King Solomon is the author of most of the book of Proverbs, which means wisdom. Solomon, upon being crowned king, was offered a gift from the Lord. Already showing wisdom, Solomon asked that the Lord bestow upon him wisdom to rule wisely. Wisdom is about how to live in a way that honors God and all wisdom comes for the Lord.

Proverbs 4: A father shares wisdom with his sons. It paints a picture, a setting, of a family gathered together, with the father leading family Bible study. It is the father’s responsibility to share the word with his family. It continues with the father contrasting sin against wisdom. Fill your heart with God’s wisdom, His word, and your life will follow. (Proverbs 4:1-27)

Following today’s reading, take some time and meditate on a piece of wisdom that stood out to you. Consider why you are drawn to that piece of wisdom? Does it go against what the secular world teaches? What is God trying to teach you through this piece of wisdom? How can that wisdom be applied to your life?
