I express my opinions openly and love to share the great new books and authors that I come across. I am more than thrilled to do reviews for any author and/or publisher.

Our Journey – Week 24

Reflection date should have been: June 15th

We ventured this week through Proverbs!

Come join Our Journeyus to read through the Bible Chronologically – this six day plan gives you Sunday off so that you can have a devoted prayer time to reflect and journal on what you’ve read throughout the week! And if needed – a day to catch up on any readings you may have missed. Please know that you can begin with the 1st of the year or at any time you please (and then catch up when you’re able to – maybe even next year)! May God Bless you as you walk and build your relationship closer with Him! 

WEEK 24

Proverbs often compares the life-styles of the wicked and the rightewous, and makes a stong case for living by God’s pattern. The advantages of righteous living and disadvantages of wicked living are pointed out. The kind of person we decide to be will affect every area of our lives.

I also want to take this time to challenge each of you to read through Proverbs in 31-days! If you’re not already reading through the Word… start this August with Proverbs – one for each day. See if you can find any more regarding the righteous and wicked.

I pray you’ve enjoyed The Word, HL
