Proverbs of Solomon

Our reading in The Daily Bible takes us through the Proverbs over the next 10 days. Solomon authored most, but not all of the Proverbs, so chronologically the Proverbs fit well here in the daily readings. The Proverbs are short poems, great for memorizing and leaning on through our journey with Jesus. Sometimes the lesson is hard to take in the short run, but an understanding of why helps receive it in the long run.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His rebuke, For whom the LORD loves He disciplines, Just as a father disciplines the son in whom he delights. Proverbs 3:11-12
