The Proverbs Are For Attaining Wisdom-Prov.1.1

OK. So we are off to the 31 Day challenge in Proverbs. Looking forward to the journey together. So much good stuff just in chapter one. Hard for me to get past the first 7 verses. I may not be writing every day but thought I would get the ball rolling a little. So...hopefully you have 31 3x5 cards. They can have 4 items on them...(Date, Ref. Big Idea, The verse)
07.01.08; Prov.1.1-4

Big Idea: THE PROVERBS ARE FOR ATTAINING, UNDERSTANDING, ACQUIRING, DOING AND GIVING

Prov. 1:1 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; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young—

That's it. Then carry them through out the day to remember and think about what the Lord impressed on you from your time with Him in His Word. Let me be clear if I was not already. My goals/desires for us are very simple:
1. To get daily exposure to the Lord and His Word
2. To renew our minds
3. To restore our souls.
4. To help us make wise decisions
5. To produce great outcomes
6. To establish great habits, practices and a disciplined life.

Excited about July and Q308 with you. ;-)
