Experiencing the Wisdom of God through Proverbs Day 2

Day 2
October 2nd ( I put this post up minutes before 12:00 a.m. so it still says October 1rst.)

Grab your Bible and notebook or go to and look up Proverbs chapter can choose from a variety of translations with just a click of a mouse. If you are joining us late...feel free to start at the introduction to the blog

This chapter reminds me of the song "Lord You Are More Precious Than Silver"

It exhorts us to have a mindset that cries out for the presence of the Lord and to desire His insight in everything. Treasure the fact that God desires to give us His wisdom. The New Living Translation says in verse seven, "He gives a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity." Wow. Living with integrity matters and He wants to show us His wisdom to react and do things in a way that will bring him Glory. If anyone has ever said that you lack common sense take hope in the fact that the God of the universe offers to give you it in abundance.

How can we really come to treasure the wisdom of God and His presence in our life?

How can wisdom keep us from the influence of the wrong people and ideas?

What did God speak to you about as you read Proverbs? Feel free to write a comment here on the blog.


  1. Learning more about God's word is so important. I am thankful of all the tools we have to challenge us to grow up in the Lord. Verse 6 tells us that the Lord giveth wisdom and out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. Hey, I need this for everyday living at the office, dealing with clients, family and in my home! Father, I thank you for Your Word and when I place Your Wisdom in my heart, I can walk in the path of a good women!

  2. hearts....Yes God wants to make His Word meet our everyday needs. Verse six is so good and lets us know that real wisdom Comes form His mouth.
