P is for Proverbs

The Watered Soul: P is for Proverbs

Apr 19, 2011

P is for Proverbs

Can’t believe its taken me this long to come up with a plausible p-letter word for my post. Especially when the book of Proverbs is by far one of my favorite books in the Bible.  I like it because it provides so many practical truths for our daily lives.

Chapter 1 of Proverbs outlines the purpose in which they were written, the Message describes it as

Written down so we'll know how to live well and right, to understand what life means and where it's going;  A manual for living, for learning what's right and just and fair;  To teach the inexperienced the ropes and give our young people a grasp on reality.  There's something here also for seasoned men and women,  still a thing or two for the experienced to learn - Fresh wisdom to probe and penetrate, the rhymes and reasons of wise men and women. Start with God

No matter our age there are some nuggets of truth to be pocketed from Proverbs.

The Word of God is full of wisdom for every area of life, isn't it? So much wisdom in the book of Proverbs. I like how the Message puts it.

The book of Proverbs is so timeless in its wisdom. The older I get the more life confirms the truths found there. Thanks for the reminder.

Absolutely Lisa it's filled with goodness. We need only read it and apply it to our lives.
Sojourner, procrastination is an excellent p-word for a post. I have become a procrastinator myself.
Yvonne thanks!
Pam ditto for me.
Karen only a wise person would know that we need His wisdom.
Barbie don't give up. Just pick up with the current letter. I have been tempting to give in myself. It's rather hard going up with a thoughtful post daily.
Belbin9 congrats to you on taking a dive into the Word. I pray that your appetite for His Word would increase the more.
Salarsen nice to meet a fellow challenger. I look forward to getting to know you.

Oh, procrastination...that dear old friend who always knocks on our door.LOL. We just have to find a way to let him know he is not welcomed.

proverbs would have to be my favorite part in the bible-right alongside songs and the new testament.

Amen Wanda!

I am very blessed still and always will be; by the book of Proverbs and the entire Bible. We will never arrive until we get to glory so until then, I need the Word of God constantly in order to live this Christian journey in a God-honoring way so I agree with you!

Book of Proverbs holds great wisdom for all of us no matter what stage in our Christian lives.

Blessings and love to you!!
