Maybe the Best Advice I’ve Ever Been Given

Years ago a pastor said people are always wanting to know what to do in certain situations. It was like they wanted God to just tell them things directly. He said a lot of our questions could be answered if we would read the Book of Proverbs. He said there are 31 chapters and most months have 30 days. He told us we could start at any time with the chapter that matches the date and read one chapter a day for months and months and after awhile it would sink in and the wisdom would become instinctive.

From time to time as the years have passed I have read Proverbs like this. If I have any wisdom at all, that’s where it came from. Something will happen and a verse from Proverbs pops into my head. That pastor sure gave some good advice.
