God’s Book of Proverbs
Lifeway Christian Resources
Years ago, when I proudly declared myself to be a seeker and student of accumulated knowledge, an older and wiser man planted seeds of thought in my mind. He asked, “Are you ardently seeking knowledge at the expense of wisdom?” I think I offhandedly replied, “Knowledge leads to wisdom and I shall have an ample supply of both.” Today I shiver at my arrogance.
Fortunately, I have since learned the difference and humbly seek God’s wisdom found on the pages of the Book of Proverbs. My dear friend above, also said, “If you take a few minutes to read one chapter a day from the Book of Proverbs, God’s wisdom will slowly take root in your heart and change your life. I promise!” I now know he was correct.
And now, thanks to Lifeway Christian Resources, I can take a smallish (4.75 X 6.75 inches) copy of “God’s Book of Proverbs” with me each day. Presented in a cloth covered hardcover, this book is able to withstand harsh treatment while protecting the pages.
God’s Book of Proverbs has a table of contents and an index directing the reader to most categories impacting our daily lives. Do you need help with patience (or lack thereof)? Turn to the index which directs you to page 108 where you’ll find five entries from Proverbs 12, 14, 16, 19, and 25. Pride however, lists 19 entries. I wonder why?
In summary; this booklet will serve as a catalyst, a starting point for each day. I can satisfy myself with reading the brief entries per proverb or focus on one, taking time in my Bible to absorb God’s intent on building my faith and wisdom. As I realize that seeking God’s wisdom in Proverbs pleases our creator, then I understand how thankful I am to Lifeway Christian Resources.
