31 Reasons You Should Read a Proverb a Day This Year

This year I’m renewing my focus on Proverbs. In addition to my daily Bible reading I’m reading and meditating on one chapter a day from the Book of Proverbs. I’ve done this in the past but in recent years I fell out of practice.

In order to strengthen my resolve I decided to write out 31 reasons why I should read a Proverb a day. I hope you might consider joining me in reading these reasons will also be helpful to you.
