chronological day 153 :)

Powering through the Proverbs! This morning we are reading 20, 21, and 22:1-16.  What stands out you today?

153

If you know me, you know I like any verse or advice that deals with planning ahead! That is music to my type-A ears!

“A farmer too lazy to plant in the spring
    has nothing to harvest in the fall” (Proverbs 20:4 MSG)

 

Another favorite proverb:

“Knowing what is right is like deep water in the heart;
    a wise person draws from the well within” (Proverbs 20:5 MSG)

The “well within” is the Holy Spirit, an inner knowing, a quiet knowing of what is right and wrong.  A deep well is dug over time – little by little, shovel by shovel, depending on what you can lift.  To become a deep well spiritually takes time and discipline – and that’s a worthy use of our time!
