Ellen opened her mailbox and discovered a bulky envelope with her dear friend’s return address. Just a few days prior, she’d shared a relational struggle with that friend. Curious, she unwrapped the package and found a colorful beaded necklace on a simple jute string. Attached was a card with a company’s slogan, “Say it in Morse Code,” and words translating the necklace’s hidden and wise message, “Seek God’s Ways.” Ellen smiled as she fastened it about her neck.

The book of Proverbs is a compilation of wise sayings—many penned by Solomon, who was acclaimed as the wisest man of his era (1 Kings 10:23). Its thirty-one chapters call the reader to listen to wisdom and avoid folly, starting with the core message of 1:7, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Wisdom—knowing what to do when—comes from honoring God by seeking His ways. In the introductory verses, we read, “Listen when your father corrects you. Don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. What you learn from them will crown you with grace and be a chain of honor around your neck.” (Proverbs 1:8 nlt).

Ellen’s friend had directed her to the Source of the wisdom she needed: Seek God’s ways. Her gift focused Ellen’s attention on where to discover the help she needed.

When we honor God and seek His ways, we’ll receive the wisdom we need for all the matters we face in life. Each and every one.

Welcome to today's encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional. I'm Alisa Morgan and I titled today's reading, the wisdom we need Ellen opened her mailbox and discovered a bulky envelope with her dear friends, return address just a few days prior. She shared a relational struggle with that friend.

The book of Proverbs is a compilation of wise sayings, many penned by Solomon who was acclaimed as the wisest man of his era. It's 31 chapters call the reader to listen to wisdom and avoid folly starting with the core message of Proverbs chapter 1 verse seven the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, wisdom, knowing what to do when comes from honoring God by seeking his ways.

In the introductory verses we read, listen when your father corrects you don't neglect your mother's instruction. What you learn from them will crown you with grace and be a chain of honor around your neck. Allen's friend had directed her to the source of the wisdom she needed. Seek God's ways. Her gift focused Allen's attention on where to discover the help she needed. When we honor God and seek his ways will receive the wisdom we need for all the matters we face in life. Each and every one today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Proverbs chapter 1 verses one through nine.

The Proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel for gaining wisdom and instruction for understanding words of insight for receiving instruction in prudent behavior. Doing what is right and just and fair for giving prudence to those who are simple knowledge and discretion to the young let the wise listen and add to their learning and let the discerning get guidance for understanding. Proverbs in parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Listen my son to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck. Let's pray God, thank you that you are the source of all wisdom.

May we seek your ways. As we face each and every decision today and tomorrow and in all our days to come.

In Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
