Daily Wisdom Challenge - Week 20 in Review

Twenty weeks into the "Daily Wisdom Challenge" (a.k.a "Twitter Bible Study")!  I am engaged in a "chronological" reading plan in which I am reading the entire Bible over the course of 2011.  I have been enjoying both the challenge of actually keeping up my daily Bible reading as well as trying to gain insight from what I've read.  I have been read the daily verses as outlined in my reading plan for the past several weeks.  Each day I post insight on the readings in 140 characters (or less!) to the DWC blog, as well as to my Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Let me re-cap Week 20 for you in case you did not see them on my Twitter or Facebook page.  I'll throw links in for the biblical references so you don't even have to dig up your own Bible if you don't want.  These are just my own reflections.  I hope they are useful to someone other than myself.  Please feel free to comment with any of your own bits of wisdom!  

Week 20 - Daily Wisdom Challenge Insights
by Sarah Fontenot

Day 134 - Ps 32 Spirits wither under the weight of guilt/sin. Confess - the Lord will forgive and free us from that bondage. Rejoice in Him who saves!  Psalms 32, 51, 86, 122

Day 135 - 2 Sam 13 Be sure that what you desire most is worth the consequences you might pay 4 going after that which probably wasn't intended 4 you.  2 Samuel 13 - 15

Day 136 - Ps 4:4 "Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent."//Seal your lips and let peace come in the night  Psalms 3 - 4, 12 - 13, 28, 55

Day 137 - 2 Sam 18 David asked that his son be treated gently despite his actions against his father. How gently do we treat those who wrong us?  2 Samuel 16 - 18

Day 138 - Ps 61 We should rejoice that God is our comfort, refuge and strength. Our love for Him should be as unfailing as His is for us.  Psalms 26, 40, 58, 61 - 62, 64

Day 139 - 2 Sam 19 Mercy and forgiveness should be shown to those who have wronged us. Why is that so hard sometimes??  2 Samuel 19 - 21
