This week, ECC’s reading plan moves from Acts to Proverbs. I love Proverbs, with the bite-sized quick hits of wisdom; it’s like the crawl at the bottom of the screen on Fox News. (I’m avoiding the Twitter analogy…too derivative…) Proverbs is full of simple, straightforward wisdom that we can all use.
In today’s reading in Chapter 1, a particular verse stuck out at me…actually, the first half of verse 5: “…let the wise listen and add to their learning…”
So here’s the thing…if I’m to be completely honest, I don’t claim to be wise, yet in my more “human” moments, I often tend to rely on my experience and knowledge as a believer. The truth is, I have a lot to learn. We all do. The best part is that we have God’s Word and the wise counsel of other Christians.
I’m looking forward to reading Proverbs again. I’m sure I’ll continue to share what I’m learning and what resonates with me as we go; I’d love to hear what you’re getting out of the readings too. Please share…
