September 16, 2021, DAY 257: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Proverbs 23-24

September 16, 2021


Our journey today through Proverbs 23-24 concludes the “Thirty Sayings of the Wise” and continues with “Further Sayings of the Wise.”

Ask the Lord for His understanding of the proverbs contained in chapters 23-24. Read Proverbs 23-24. 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 23-24: We continue our study of the “Thirty Sayings of the Wise” before moving on to “Further Sayings of the Wise.” Each saying offers a special insight of wisdom. (Proverbs 23:1-24:34)

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?
