Proverb's Daily Challenge

Daily Wisdom Challenge

Now more than ever, it is important for us to be wise stewards concerning those things that affect our communities and loved ones.

So please join us for a daily challenge, as we read through the book of Proverbs.

Proverbs is a book that encourages us to live wisely or properly, through our attitude, conduct, and characteristics. Traditionally, wisdom is defined as the ability to use knowledge correctly.

“On the contrary: ‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.’” – Romans 12:20

Scripture also tells us that:

 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”– Proverbs 9:10.

So Biblical wisdom begins with a proper relationship with God, then?

As Christians, we understand the difference between worldly wisdom and Divine wisdom. We can understand that true wisdom is not just a matter of the mind, but of the heart as well.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” – Proverbs 3:5-6

We believe that scripture truly speaks to the human heart and this challenge aims to practice understanding the difference between proper and improper attitudes, conduct, and characteristics of a Biblically dynamic life.

 While many critics suggest that the Bible is out of date or has lost touch with our culture, Christians know that the author of this book, our faith and of course life, is eternal and exists outside of time. Because of this, all scripture is profitable for doctrine (what’s right), for reproof (what’s wrong), for correction (get right), and for instruction (stay right).

So how will this work? 

Each day we will read a chapter in the book of Proverbs and we will post a link to make it easy.

We will start on May 1st, reading Proverbs Chapter 1.

Choose one Proverb to reflect on that speaks to you and share it with us or comment on our daily challenge post. 

On May 2nd, read Proverbs Chapter 2, chose a unique Proverb to reflect on and share. May 3rd, 4th, and so on. If you miss a day, catch up on the next day.

You get the idea, right? 

We will read one chapter a day, reflect on one that speaks out, and share your blessing with our family! 

We’re in! Are you? 

After all:

“if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” – James 1:5

What do you have to lose other than foolishness?
