Today on K-LOVE (national Christian Radio Station) I heard the morning show mention that they were going to do Proverbs 31 Chapters in 31 Days for the month of October. I will probably miss over half of their discussions as I only even caught this one on the tail end, but the idea stuck with me all day. So, I decided to try and do a daily post about each chapter of Proverbs. I will most often be reading from an NIV Student Study Bible. I would love to hear from any of you during my process. I am far from an expert and any thing I say is taken from my understanding of what I am reading.
Proverbs Chapter 1:
This chapter focuses on Foolishness, Wisdom, Discipline, and Enticement.
Proverbs 1:7 states, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline." It discusses the importance of gaining wisdom and in not following the paths or joining in with sinners. Important advice to follow yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Tonight in Bible Study we learned that if you want to make a change you cannot continue on the same path you have used in the past. In essence you must gain knowledge of your past actions, and make an active change to see a change. Also, if you continue to surround yourself with those whom you commit your sins then you most likely will continue the sin. Common sense, my friends, but I think sometimes we all need a reminder.
I hope to hear from some of you along the way. If you are familiar with the chapter or want to read it and add in your thoughts then I would love to read your comments. Please remember to be respectful. I know sometimes differing views in religion can be difficult to accept.
