Simply delightful is wisdom from the Lord!
Join me for 30 days as we read through Proverbs 22:17-24:34 (NIV) – The Thirty Sayings of the Wise. Each day we’ll cover a new saying and reveal new Truths to hide in our hearts. May the Lord grant us teachable hearts and minds as we meditate on His glorious Words these next days.
Thirty Sayings of the Wise
Day 4 | Saying 4 | September 4
26 Do not be one who shakes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts;
27 if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.
A) According to these verses what does God want from you? What is He saying to you?
B) What is your REACTION to these Truths?
C) How can you APPLY these Truths to your life? What are some practical ways you can take action right now?
|Day 1 prayer – God, we thank You for your wonderful instruction. Help us to be honest and truthful, to hide Your Words in our hearts, to apply Your wisdom to our lives, and to place all our trust in You every single day. | add Day 2 prayer – Lord, give us eyes see and hands to meet the needs of the poor, the widows, and the orphans. Help us be fair and just with all people, always treating them in a way that brings you honor and glory. | add Day 3 prayer – Lord, free us from all anger, resentment, and hostility, help peace prosper in our hearts and follow us wherever we go. Teach us silence, patience and self-control. | add Day 4 prayer – Lord, help us to be content in every circumstance, especially with whatever You have given us, help us see the full weight financial debt, the downward spiral of collateral or secured loans, and the serious yoke of our words and pledges. According to Your command, let us owe no man nothing but to love them. Let our worth be found in You alone, not physical items and wealth. In Jesus mighty name we pray.
I hope you enjoyed day 4 🙂 I pray God spoke to you while you read this, I urge you to listen to whatever He put on your heart. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback. The goal and purpose of Bible study is for us to grow spiritually. I pray God gives us the wisdom to provide mutually beneficial thought-provoking, Christ-like inspiration.
God bless you all!
