A 31 Day Challenge From Proverbs

Prov. 1:1-4, "The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; 4 for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young...
I have a challenge for us as we enter Q308 (Third Quarter 2008 :-)
Over the next 31 days...
1. I will be reading and thinking about one chapter a day from Proverbs.
2. I will also seek to get one "Big Idea" or "Power Phrase" for the day.
3. I will put the date, the reference, the phrase and the one verse on a 3x5 card for 31 days.
4. I will summarize each of the power phrases at the end of each week on 7/5, 7/12. 7/19, 7/26 and 7/31.
I guarantee it will change our thinking, our decisions, our outcomes and our lives. It will increase our wisdom, discipline, insights, knowledge and discretion.
Any one want to join me? Any takers?
Let me know by responding on this blog.

The thing that makes me smile is that this is what you do everyday.... powerphrase,3x5 cards, summarize each week... But I like how you're encouraging the troops around you to join in. That's pretty cool! I'll join in with you all.

You going to be asking us all to send you our phrases, and summaries!?!? :)
