Proverbs 16-18

Read today with a soft heart.  I was reminded last night that Solomon asked for 1 thing…Wisdom (1 Kings 3).  What would you have asked for? I am going to be real:  I would ask for a self-cleaning house or an unlimited ATM card or for my children to live long happy lives….BUT God wants us to live life abundantly!  You are at a crossroads…choose 1:

  • Read or listen to today’s reading, check it off your list, go about your day
  • Pray, think about what you are reading….this is the WISDOM.  Read them, take some notes so that you can APPLY them.  The scripture says it will straighten your path!!

If you read these and you see a “theme” to a few of them, circle them and reread those later today.  Maybe you need to put them on flashcards and use it as a bookmark.

If you read one and are like “Oh my stars”, I want that to look at every day”, tell me in the comments and put the word “Art” next to the Proverb and I will make you a special bookmark and mail it to you.  ❤

  1. I love these…you can pick the “art” 😀 Thank you! I’m excited about my bookmark. ❤️

    16:3 Commit your work to the Lord, and then your plans will succeed.

    16:9 We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.

    16:24 Kind words are like honey- sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

    16:33 We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall.


  2. 1. It’s amazing to think that we’re reading quotes from a man who prayed to God for wisdom… and received it, and had it wrote down for others to have the information.
    How many of us pray for wisdom, but don’t open our bibles to proverbs?!

    My interest today is in two that focus on your spirit:

    Ch 17: v22
    A merry heart does good, like medicine,
    But a broken spirit dries the bones

    Ch 18: v14
    The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness,
    But who can bear a broken spirit!

    P.s.: to go back to my rant on your friends
    Ch 18: v1
    A man who isolated himself seeks his own desire,
    He rages against all wise judgement.

    (I once heard a quote that said, the only thing that grows in the dark is shame….)(don’t isolate yourself from Godly folks people!!)
