Daily Devotional | The Fear of the Lord

  • July 2, 2022 | Proverbs 1:7

Did you ever see the ‘90s television show Are You Afraid of the Dark? The series centered around a group of kids who would gather around a campfire every weekend to tell scary stories. Many (but not all) people enjoy scary television shows, movies, and books. They love the jittery feeling that comes with being afraid.

A Conversation with July's "Wisdom From Above" Devotional Author

From the Editor

Hello friends,

What do you do when you encounter a problem? When we find ourselves in a difficult spot or puzzling situation, most of us turn to a close friend for advice. Or maybe we search the internet for a helpful article or expert. But I’ve found that often even those trusted resources can fall short.

We all need God’s wisdom!

In this month’s study of the book of Proverbs, Wisdom from Above, devotional author Dr. Russell Meek explains, “Proverbs was originally written to train young men, giving them the wisdom to follow a righteous path, living in right relationship with God. But the Old Testament book of Proverbs is certainly not just for the young. Wisdom beckons to us all!”

We hope you’ll join us to consider what this ancient book of wisdom teaches us today. This study will help you respond to wisdom’s call by seeking the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. Thank you for being a part of our Bible study.
