Insights on Today's Reading
Proverbs 30 - This chapter is written by a man named, Agur. We don't know much about him but God gave him some very wise words to write even though he humbly admits his ignorance in verse 2. I've always appreciated his thoughts in verse 7-9 where he asks that God would not give him too much wealth that he doesn't lean on the Lord, nor that God would not give him enough to survive less he resort to theft and profane God's name. He also speaks of family relationships, things which cause him to marvel, things which are small but crafty, and other observations that we can all appreciate.
Proverbs 31 - This chapter is written by King Lemuel, a man not well known. Actually he admits his mother taught him what he shares in the chapter. Perhaps he is writing about his mother and the wise way she conducted her life, raised her children, and honored her husband. Whatever this woman was like she is best known as a woman who feared the Lord, verse 30.
Now that you have read through the Proverbs I hope you'll come back again and again to this book. Billy Graham practiced a pattern of reading the books of Psalms and Proverbs every month. Since there are 150 chapters in the Psalms, he realized that reading 5 Psalms a day he can go through that book in a month, and since there are 31 chapters in Proverbs, he can read that book every month by reading a chapter a day. Try it.
