Every month so far this year in 2011, we’ve matched letters. For example, January was Jesus month, February was Family month, March was Marriage month, and April was Answers month. Now, in May, there is no matching letter for the theme I want to do so I am just going to do a little rhyme. We want to look at the manifold wisdom of God in a little book He wrote called Proverbs! Each day, we will choose a proverb or two of the day to reflect upon. So, May is Proverb of the Day month!
What’s great about Proverbs is that there are 31 chapters so it’s perfect to sync one chapter with each day.
Billy Graham did this – he read a proverb for whatever day of the month it was – every day for most of his life. On the 1s, he read the 1st proverb and on the 2nd, the 2nd proverb – every day for every month of most of his life. No wonder he was so very wise! He was learning wisdom from God, the source of all true wisdom!
Let’s be like Billy this May as we deem this month: “May the Proverb of the Day” and let’s witness the Manifold Wisdom of God in Proverbs.”
