Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 1

Humility
Start with God—the first step in learning is bowing down to God;
   only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning
.
Proverbs 1:7 (TM)

The first two steps of Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Steps go like this:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

That’s Proverbs 1:7 in practical application and it’s true no matter what issue has me down. The first step to wisdom (and recovery, success, restoration, maturity, sanity, etc.) is humility and surrender.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 1”

  1. Recently I have had discussions with a few different individuals about life-changing decision making and the ups and downs of communication with God. “First pay attention to me, and then relax. Now you can take it easy—you’re in good hands.” (Prov 1-The Message)What a perspective! So many positive results are available to us if we start with Him.
