Verses: 1-7
“These are the proverbs of King Solomon of Israel, David’s son: He wrote them to teach his people how to live—how to act in every circumstance, for he wanted them to be understanding, just, and fair in everything they did. “I want to make the simpleminded wise!” he said. “I want to warn young men about some problems they will face. I want those already wise to become wiser and become leaders by exploring the depths of meaning in these nuggets of truth.” How does a man become wise? The first step is to trust and reverence the Lord! TLB

The Purpose of the Book of Proverbs - A Manual for Living

Where purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable. Proverbs 1:1-7 spells out the purpose of the entire book of proverbs. So, in order to accomplish the purpose of this challenge, it is recommended that we
1. Pay close attention to the book of proverbs this year
2. Read each chapter of the book in different translations that bring the message closer to you. Recommendations (TLB, TPT and MSG)
3. Where possible, listen to the audio version of the book of proverbs when out on exercising, driving or when doing house chores.

Verses: 7-11
“For the Lord has a hidden storehouse of wisdom made accessible to his godly ones. He becomes your personal bodyguard as you follow his ways, protecting and guarding you as you choose what is right. Then you will discover all that is just, proper, and fair, and be empowered to make the right decisions as you walk into your destiny. When wisdom wins your heart and revelation breaks in, true pleasure enters your soul. If you choose to follow good counsel, divine design will watch over you and understanding will protect you from making poor choices.” TPT

Benefits of Wisdom: Success, Divine Protection and Direction

Seeking wisdom requires deliberate actions; even more is the application of it. These verses tell us that godly/righteous people will be given access to the hidden storehouse of God’s wisdom. They also reveal that God becomes our personal bodyguard when we choose what is right and that we will be empowered to make the right decisions as we walk into our destiny. So to avail of these benefits, it is recommended that we
1. Are deliberate is choosing and doing what is right when we are faced with life’s choices even though they may not be popular
2. Lean onto and tap on the grace of God to live a godly life daily

Verses: 1-4

“My child, if you truly want a long and satisfying life, never forget the things that I’ve taught you. Follow closely every truth that I’ve given you. Then you will have a full, rewarding life. Hold on to loyal love and don’t let go, and be faithful to all that you’ve been taught. Let your life be shaped by integrity, with truth written upon your heart. That’s how you will find favor and understanding with both God and men—you will gain the reputation of living life well. TPT

Integrity and Truth, Keys to Divine Favour and understanding with both God and men

No matter the amount of wisdom you are exposed to, it is of no effect if it is not applied for daily living. We must be hearers and doers of the Word and Wisdom of God. One of the core teachings of wisdom is integrity. Integrity is who you are when no one is watching. In these verses, we learn that if we allow our lives to be shaped by integrity, with truth written on our hearts then, we will favor and understanding with both God and men. We were anointed on the first day of the year to obtain “favour for double portion.” To be assured this promise, it is recommended that we
1. Let our lives be shaped by integrity in all of our endeavours
2. Let our speech be guided by truth and put away all falsehood
3. Be hearers and doers; who are faithful to all that we have been taught

Verses: 20-23
“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. NKJV

Your Life Is at Stake: Wisdom will Preserve You!

The core of these verses is verse 23, that admonishes us to keep our heart with all diligence because from it springs the issues of life. Our hearts and minds are priceless possessions the Lord has blessed us with; and they are worth giving everything we have to protect. They are very important to us because the things our hearts and minds focus on, whether positive or negative are the things we tend to attract to our lives. To guard our hearts and minds, it is recommended that we
1. Prevent evil thoughts from dwelling in our hearts
2. Renew Your Mind Daily with the Word of God
3. Align Your Thoughts with God’s Words
