Daily Bible Reading for Thursday, February 22nd:

Proverbs 18:4 – The Living Water


4 Spoken words can be like deep water,
but wisdom is like a flowing stream. – Proverbs 18:4 NCV

(Note: The NCV is a little weak here – most other versions render this similar to “man’s words” instead of “spoken words”.)

No answers today, but something we can work on.

Do non-believers see through the innovative teachings of man designed to attract followers? Solomon compares those things to the mysteriousness and darkness of deep water. Do they really not believe or are they simply turned off?

The Lord’s words have the strength and refreshing qualities of the cool babbling brook. Simple. Pure. Calming.

Was this the passage Jesus referred to on the last day of the feast? (John 7:37-38)
