For me, the point of "The Proverbs Challenge!" isn't for you to see what I have to say about a particular chapter. I certainly don't claim to be a Bible scholar. But I do want to tell you what God had to say to me, but I also want to encourage YOU to read a chapter each day and see what God has to say to you. You don't have to post it here (although I think that's pretty cool if you do) but I do hope you'll commit to reading Proverbs all through June.
it's a tiny little word but it carries a lot of weight.
God is offering us wisdom and understanding but there's a big "IF" in the equation. And the "IF" is totally in our hands.
Proverbs 2:1 My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
and the "ifs" continue through verse 4.
vs. 5 THEN you will understand the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God.
There are a lot of IF/THENs in the Bible. God doesn't force Himself on us. He offers Himself and if we follow the IF part He is faithful to always follow through with the THEN.
