DAY 292: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Our journey today through Proverbs focuses on chapters 31, the final chapter is this book of wisdom.
Ask the Lord for His understanding of Proverbs 31. Read Proverbs 31. 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 31: Proverbs 31 begins with the Sayings of King Lemuel. Nothing is known about King Lemuel, beyond what is provided in this chapter. Interestingly, although credited to King Lemuel, the words were taught to him by his mother. The Sayings of King Lemuel is followed the epilogue of the book of Proverbs and looks at what makes up a wife of noble character. (Proverbs 31:1-31)
