The book of Proverbs contains a collection of sayings that provide wisdom and guidance for every day life. One tool that is very useful is to read the chapter of Proverbs that coincides with the current date. For example, today is the 9th of November so read Proverbs 9. (Just to make it an easy start, I will copy Proverbs 9 in below).
Spend a few minutes each day when you first get up to read a Proverbs, spend some time in prayer and study of God’s Word and see how much better your day goes. When I was training as a chiropractic neurologist one of my professors made a comment that we should read a verse from Proverbs each day…but read it upside down. The exercise of reading upside down is a great mental tool and keeps your brain sharp. He said, “A Proverb a day read upside down is good for the soul and good for the mind.”
Proverbs 9 (KJV)
Pr 9:1 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars: Pr 9:2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table. Pr 9:3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city, Pr 9:4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Pr 9:5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled. Pr 9:6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding. Pr 9:7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot. Pr 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. Pr 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. Pr 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Pr 9:11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. Pr 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it. Pr 9:13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing. Pr 9:14 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, Pr 9:15 To call passengers who go right on their ways: Pr 9:16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Pr 9:17 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. Pr 9:18 But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell. (KJV)
