Have you ever noticed how connected the Proverbs are with the teachings of Jesus? It’s something that this month’s author, Jenna Fabiano, found in studying God’s Word.
Previously, she had avoided the book of Proverbs because it didn’t seem to apply to her life. In addition, there was very little or no storytelling, and she had trouble seeing how it related to the rest of the Bible. But a few years ago, she was struck by how often Jesus’ words are reflected in the words of Proverbs. The reason, Jenna says, is because the wise sayings and general wisdom in Proverbs flow from the wisdom of God, made clear to us in the gift of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, our Lord and Savior.
For the month of February, let’s rediscover the book of Proverbs and reflect on some of the treasures it offers. We’ll focus on a number of proverbs in the first half of the book, with the hope that these pages will inspire you to explore the book of Proverbs further. May Jesus grant us the Spirit of wisdom as we seek to know him more!
Jenna Fabiano is an ordained minister and pastor at Willoughby Church in Langley, British Columbia. She and her family live in nearby Coquitlam, B.C.
As you read the Today devotions this month, may you be refreshed, refocused, and renewed in God’s Word!
See God's love, power, presence, and purpose in your life every day!
