Daily Wisdom Challenge - Weeks 36 & 37

On January 1, I began my second-ever year long bible study.  Our pastor calls it the Daily Wisdom Challenge {or the "Twitter Bible Study"}.  The purpose is to engage in a reading plan for a year, and post insight from your reading each day, in 140 characters or less!  You can find a reading plan at YouVersion.

I must admit, as I have done in a previous post on the Daily Wisdom Challenge that I fell a week behind while we were in Boston.  I've had a hard time catching up, but I finally did it!!  So, instead of the usual one week of insight, I have a double dose for you.  Yes, it's double.  But it just quick little nuggets of Truth for you to ponder!

Here is what I learned over the past week:

Eccl 6:10 God has had the plan for our lives since the beginning of time. It makes no sense to argue with that.

Eccl 7:14 Accept God's ways. Though they don't always make sense, they are His ways and we shouldn't waste time trying to "fix" what we don't even understand.

Eccl 12:14 God knows all we do whether it is in public or private. He will judge us for what we have done regardless.

Ps 50:23 Give thanks to God. It is a way to give Him glory for all the things He has done for you.

2 Cor 9:11 When you give generously, you will be blessed so that others may continue to be blessed by your generosity.

Is 1:17 We must learn to do good - seek justice and fight for those who cannot defend themselves.

2 Cor 11:12-13 We must seek knowledge and truth so that we will not be deceived when we encounter false teachers of Christ.

2 Cor 11:30-31 If you must boast, boast about the things that you struggle with - your weaknesses. God will know you are sincere!

2 Cor 12:9-10 God works His best through our weaknesses. When you feel weak, allow Him to come in and do a mighty work through you. In your weakness, He is strong!

Ps 56:10-11 It doesn't matter what happens. God's promises are good and, therefore, we should fear nothing.

2 Cor 13:11 As we walking our faith, we should do so joyfully and be an encouragement to others on their walk.

Gal 1:7 Be alert for false teachers who seek to throw us from our path of what is good.

Prov 23:13 Discipline your children!! It isn't going to kill them if you correct them when they do wrong!

Gal 3:2 We don't receive the Holy Spirit because we know how to follow a bunch of rules. We receive the Holy Spirit because of our belief in the Gospel and in Christ.
