Bible Reading: Proverbs 8:1-10
Key Verse: Verse 10 - “Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.”
Key Words: Receive my instruction
Proverbs, chapter eight, deals with the wisdom of God’s Word. In verses one through nine, we see the plea of God’s Word; in verses ten through twenty-one, we see the riches of God’s Word; and in verses twenty-two through thirty-six, we see the influence of God’s Word.
Some time back I read a story of the importance of God’s Word. The story went like this:
I would like a job as tutor, teacher, and advisor to your family. I will never take a vacation. I will never be out of humor. I don’t smoke or drink. I will not borrow your clothes or raid your refrigerator.
I will be up in the morning as early as anyone in the house, and I will stay up as late as anyone wishes. I will help solve any problems your children might have. I will give you the satisfaction of knowing that no question your children ask will go unanswered. For that matter, I will answer any of your questions or subjects that range from, “How did I get here?” to “Where am I headed?”
I will help settle any difference of opinion anyone or you may have. I will give you information that will help you with your job, your family, and all other interests.
In short, I will give you the knowledge that will ensure the continued success of your family.
I AM YOUR BIBLE!!
DO I GET THE JOB?
