Vacation Scripture #7

Written by Bill Grandi on September 9th, 2019

Jo and I are on our much-needed trip away-a trip to Alaska-courtesy of the folks at OVCF (the church I pastor). It was given to us after a tough season of ministry (losing two very close friends to cancer within a few weeks of each other) and in celebration of 45 years of my ordination.  Since I won’t be taking my computer and despise using my phone to do any type of blogging, I will be basically incognito from Tuesday, September 3 through Tuesday, September 10. I plan (notice the word Plan) to be back in the office on Wednesday and therefore resume my regular devotions.

So in anticipation of that, I thought I would share with you the Scriptures from Proverbs I underlined my last time through (August). I try to read a chapter of Proverbs for a month, every other month.  So here is the Scripture I highlighted on August 9th.

“Give instructions to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.” (v.9)

The wise person keeps learning and growing and getting wiser. What does that say about the foolish man?

Now it is your turn to think about it.

    There is so much instruction in the proverbs concerning wisdom and foolishness. Increase in learning, increase in wisdom… the alternative is forgetting or disregarding what you have been taught.
