Summer Break: Reading Through Proverbs One Day at a Time

Prov. 3:18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

Sometimes, we feel we get more and more tired and worn…but the path of the righteous just keeps shining brighter and brighter.  How encouraging1

Proverbs 2: 17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
and all her paths are peace.

Pleasant…all her ways.  Peaceful…all her paths.

19 By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations,

I love this verse…I’m not sure why.  I think because it points to Jesus as being there in the beginning.  He was the word, the spoken wisdom of God, brining into being all that was created, right there with God.  Perhaps it points to the working together of the Trinity in ways we don’t always clearly see between Jesus and God in the beginning.  It gives us a sense of the way things were between jesus and God before Jesus came to earth.  They functioned together.
