31 Days in Proverbs – Introduction

I once heard about the habit of a Christian leader I admire. He and his wife read a chapter of the Proverbs every morning. Every single morning. And when they get to the end of the book, they start again.

Proverbs is perfect for this, of course, as it has 31 chapters. One for each day of the month (a few extra chapters in February!).

Ever since learning this, I’ve thought more and more about the character of that man, and the one thing that continually strikes me is his Biblical wisdom. Now, I’m certain that his wisdom has come from reading more of the Bible than just this one book, but I’ve always wanted to emulate this pattern.

And so, this month, I’m going to read a chapter of Proverbs every day, and post a brief reflection every morning.

Can I challenge you to do something similar? If not a chapter, maybe a few verses. If not the Proverbs, maybe another book – the Psalms, or one of the Gospels?

If you do, drop me a line. I’d love to hear how you’re finding it.
