I'm on a journey to read through the Bible in chronological order. Taking it one day at a time, I will read based on a list I found on the internet and blog about what happened, thoughts provoked, emotions conjured, etc. Enjoy!

Day 163: Proverbs 25-26

The main thing I've taken away from the beginning of this reading is that we are to be wise about what matters we pursue and bring before higher authorities. Don't hasten to raise yourself up in higher courts, but wait for someone in power to exalt you. Be careful about how you speak about your neighbor. Don't dig too deep into their business and don't overstay your welcome.

The bottom line is: humble yourself, think before charging ahead and always exalt your neighbor--not yourself!
