As I’ve slowed my Bible reading down, I’ve taken the time to let phrases sink in or words stand out to me.
To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth — Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance, to understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles. Proverbs 1:2-6 ESV
I shared this passage about a week ago and I’m still there. 🙂 I’ve been praying for wisdom and prudence mostly. Everything goes better when you do life God’s way. I’ve done foolish and I’ve done wise. Wise is much better.
What part of this passage stands out to you? What do you need from God right now in your life and marriage? Why not spend a bit of time in Proverbs today?
