To be honest with you, I have never sat down and actually read the Bible. It has always been something I wanted to do, inspired to do, started to do; yet, never actually did it. With my quiet time with God (a response to my quest for a balanced life), I have focused on Proverbs. I have really enjoyed reading this particular book. At first, I really didn’t get the idea of one piece of advice God’s thought after another; but, I continued with it and I have fallen madly in love with Proverbs.
The whole meaning behind Proverbs being advice from a father to a son, makes it even more special. It is like God has become my “Dear Abby.” He advises on just about every subject and well..it is really good advice.. DUH!! Can you just picture God sitting beside you, holding your hand and giving you His advice?
Pay attention and listen to the sayings of the wise; apply your hear to what I teach, for it is pleasing when you keep them in your heart and have all of them ready on your lips… Proverbs 22:17-18
Oh, man, I want to please Him so… Don’t cha just love that image???
