Week eleven

The Writings

King Solomon was the wisest ruler Israel ever had. He was the son of David and unlike the other kings of his day he prayed and sought God and asked above all else for wisdom and his guidance. In his wisdom, he authored a majority of three books of the old testament; Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and The Songs of Solomon. This week, we discuss the writings of Solomon. Let’s get started!

Day 1: What are you seeking today? Where do you place value? What truths can you extract from the reading today?

  • What I seek today is God’s plan for me, his voice, his purpose for me, understanding what he has placed in me so that I can do what he’s calling me to do. In addition to walking in obedience, seeking guidance and wisdom.
  • I place value on Gd, walking in obedience, and being authentically who he has created me to be, and family.
  • Don’t walk blindly, ask for understanding

Day 2: Take one truth mentioned in today’s reading and discuss how you can or currently do apply it to your daily life.

  • Proverbs22:1 Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. (I live by my character and integrity. That is all I have and people know me and trust me because of it. My character and integrity speaks volumes about me and who I am therefore, my reputation proceeds itself.
  • Proverbs 22:4 True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life. (I live a very humble life and am a very humble person)

Day 3: Based on these pairings and knowing that God appoints them to happen. What is being conveyed about His character and their application to your life? How can we view things from God’s perspective?

  • There is a reason and a season for everything. God’s timing is best and although I may not understand it, I must walk in it. God has created a plan and knows things will occur before they even happen, so trust him and the process because he knows best.
  • Trust him, trust the process, and trust him even when you can’t trace him. Realize that everything happens for a reason and a season.

Day 4: How would you respond to a person who believes that there is plenty of time to live before deciding to follow God? If life is vanity, then what should we place our focus on? What is the duty of man?

  • Time waits for no one, live your life to the fullest but remember that life is short so you want to make sure you’re connected to God because it is best to be prepared and ready rather than not ready when Jesus comes.
  • Enjoy life but live a life that is pleasing to God.
  • Fear the Lord

Day 5: How can you express your praise to a loving God? What does your song of praise for God sound like?

  • Honor him, worship him, fear him, live a life that is pleasing to him, spend time with him, walk in obedience.
  • A sweet melody, silence, cry of worship and adoration
