Today as I was doing my Bible reading, I read a few chapters in Proverbs. I really like the proverbs! and here’s why, they are written like I think, like women think. Women tend to have a million and one things going on in their brains. This leads to this and to this and so on. A conversation at our house would go something like this:
Mike: Sara did you have a good day today?
Sara: Yes we did. We played at the park. Oh we saw so and so there. Did you know their expecting? Hey I was reading a blog post about strollers and which ones are great for multiple small children. You remember that our friends (who have many small children) are coming home this weekend right? I’m hungry, should we get pizza tonight.
The Proverbs to me feel very much like that. Here are a few nuggets I found as I was reading today.
Proverbs 16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
Proverbs 16:24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
Proverbs 17:6 Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.
Proverbs 17:17 A friend love at all times.
Proverbs 17:28 Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.
Proverbs 19:11 Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
Proverbs 19:18 Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.
Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in the mind of man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Proverbs 19:23 The fear of the Lord leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm.
Proverbs 20:11 Even a child makes himself known by his acts, by whether his conduct is pure and upright.
Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts.
Proverbs 20:29 The glory of young men is their strength, but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.
No big over-arching theme just little nuggets from Gods word to keep me on the straight and narrow!
