Proverbs 18-21 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Proverbs 18:5-10 is a great sample of the wisdom in Proverbs:

“It is not good to be partial to the wicked or to deprive the righteous of justice. A fool’s lips walk into a fight, and his mouth invites a beating. A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul. The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into the inner parts of the body. Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys. The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.”

Proverbs 20:1 is a foreshadowing of some serious advice yet to come: “Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.”

With so much wisdom, how can we absorb it all? We can’t like this. We can only get a taste. In order to fully embrace the wisdom in Proverbs it would be best to take a few verses at a time and meditate on them. There are 915 verses in Proverbs, which means you could take 3 verses a day and cover the entire book in less than a year!
