An “apple a day” keeps the doctor away. I know of something even better than that. I call it “A Proverb a day.” Read just “one a day” and you will wreak of WISDOM.
Imagine taking a shot of wisdom each and every day for free. I say shot because they are less than one page each yet chock-full of instant and powerful wisdom. There are a total of thirty-one chapters. One for each day of the month.
You can find these winning words in the Old Testament of the Bible. The 31 chapters are loaded with God’s wisdom spoken through King Solomon who is considered the wisest King of all time and certainly the wealthiest.
It is no coincidence that there are 31 chapters. By ingesting one chapter a day every day, you complete the whole book of Proverbs each month 12 times a year. You are privileged to have access to such sage advice twelve times a year ensuring this available wisdom sinks in to today’s mind that is more cluttered than a 3,000 square-foot home reduced to an 80 square-foot storage-shed after a divorce.
Clear your mind for a minute or two each morning and start your day with instructions on how to
avoid divorce, avoid financial hardship, gain a productive/rewarding and healthy life when you apply the principles that Proverbs suggest. Proverbs teaches us about foolishness, wisdom, pride, fear,wealth, gossip, insecurity and a whole host of pertinent ideologies as well as real-life materialistic concerns.
An example would be Proverbs 12:24 that suggests diligent hands will rule for laziness ends in forced labor. This proverb is probably common sense but applying it is where the wisdom comes in. God offers his wisdom freely if you ask Him for it. Sometimes wisdom is just common sense with ardent application.
I encourage you to start today. Pull out your Bible to whatever day you are reading this writing and read the one-page Proverb of the day. Start today. It is a good-read and offers keys to prosperity and a well-balanced life.
