Upon completion of today’s Bible readings, we are fast approaching the end of our studies of the book of Proverbs. Let’s keep reading together, and may God bless the study of His Word.


Today’s selections from Proverbs focus on finances. Topics include ambition, banking, benevolence, debt, efficiency, employment, generosity, greed, industry, justice, labor, poverty, stewardship, tithing, usury, wealth, workaholism and many more money matters.


Such topics seem particularly relevant in today’s troubled economic times.


Many of the Scriptures in today’s daily devotional readings warrant extra attention and even Bible memorization. Try this crossword puzzle, and see how many Scripture verses become planted in your heart. May God write His Word upon our lives, as we ponder the Proverbs.


For clues, look up these Proverbs (in the New International Version).

Will you pray with me?


Almighty One,

Ancient of Days

And Father of all wisdom,

Teach us to be wise stewards

Of all You have given to us.

Help us to glorify You

In the work You place before us

And with the fruits of our labors.

Amen.
