My month of reading Psalms and Proverbs every day has expired, and I have learned so much. If you desire to know God better, to understand the condition of man, to learn lessons of wisdom, to read inspiring examples of faith–if you seek to know any of this, I highly encourage you to spend time in Psalms and Proverbs. If you read one chapter of Proverbs and five Psalms every day, you can read through both books in one month.
I’m working on posts that will detail what I learned in October about God and man as I immersed myself in these two books of God’s Word. From Psalms, I learned all about God, answering these questions: who is God? what has He done/does He do? when has God existed? and where is God? From Proverbs, I learned all about man, focusing most particularly on matters of money, love/the heart, wisdom, youth, folly, sin, laziness, women, and pride.
Of course, there is always more to learn, so I am repeating this exercise, re-reading these two books this month. As October came to an end, I prayed fervently: what next, God? The clear answer: again. There is still much to learn.
I hope you will join me as I write about my exploration of Psalms and Proverbs. I will categorize these posts under “From Psalms and Proverbs” to make them more accessible.
