Proverbs challenge

One of the things that has kept me going and helped me hear from and follow God is reading Proverbs each day.  I miss days from time to time, but in this reading I see and hear from God.  It was at the urging of Johnny Hunt that I began this journey.  Here is some of today's reading:

6 Stop being gullible and live. Start traveling the road to understanding.

9 Give advice to a wise person, and he will become even wiser. Teach a righteous person, and he will learn more.

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.  The knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

11 You will live longer because of me, and years will be added to your life.

Those are strong words that if lived by will make a huge difference in our lives and in those around us.  Stop and read back through them.  What are you hearing God say?  There is no reason to continue living the way you are living.  Get understanding.  Get wisdom.  Live wise.  The only way to do this is to follow God.  It comes with a promise.

Proverbs will give you daily wisdom.  It has 31 chapters.  Read one a day as most months have 31 days.  I challenge you to take the Proverbs Challenge.
