Clean Living with Proverbs

June 1, 2013

Comments Off on Clean Living with Proverbs

I learned of an old technique for better living, better business and better relationships that I have been trying to develop into a habit. Begin a daily reading plan by selecting the chapter of Proverbs that corresponds to the day of the month.

For the rest of the day, reflect on one or more of the principles in that day’s chapter. You might even try to take action based on something in that reading. Just as the Proverb writer says in Proverbs 1:2-7, these ageless bits of wisdom can be used to make one a more godly person. From long thoughtful passages to short pithy zingers, even the wise have something to gain from the inspired words of Solomon.

Some things you will get from applying Proverbs to your life:

  • Wisdom
  • Instruction
  • Prudence
  • Beneficial Knowledge
  • Discretion
  • The ability to apply information
  • Sound Counsel
  • Understanding
  • The fear of God

Truly the ultimate self-help book!
