Wisdom. It’s something we all desire, but often, it’s challenging to obtain. If you’re not familiar with the book of Proverbs, it’s a book packed full of wisdom. You may not even realize it if you simply skim through it. But if you’ll read each chapter slowly, reflectively and commit to practicing the principles within, I believe it will bless you beyond your wildest imagination.
So why, out of all the 66 books of the Bible, should you choose Proverbs? To be honest, the one reason I picked Proverbs is because it has 31 chapters. That means that every month, I can read through the entire book.
One of the benefits of reading it every month is that it becomes like an old friend where you know what he’s going to say before he even says it. A friendship like this is one that you’ve built over the years. In the same way, every month as you revisit the words of each chapter, it brings to memory the takeaways and the relevant wisdom you’ve realized over the months of reading.
The chapters also are not very long, which allows for a simple change in your schedule. You can do it in a short period of time. It’s chock-full of wisdom that will bless your life. It’s given me ideas for how to be wise everyday, in areas such as my finances, my marriage, my relationship with my parents, and many other aspects of life that anyone would find to be important.

There are many situations that come up in life that we simply don’t have the wisdom to deal with. Most of us might ask friends, family members, or coworkers for advice. These are all normal paths to find the right answer, and I would not tell you to stop going to these sources of knowledge for advice, especially if they’ve served you positively in the past. But I’m challenging you to look to God first and use the wisdom he has given us in Proverbs.
