Proverbs

I have been studying the book of Proverbs this week for my Tuesday morning Bible Study. This is a 32 week Bible Study called Disciple Bible IV and it has been such a BLESSING to me. The talented leaders, the participants, and the time spent during the week preparing for class have all enriched my life. A verse from Proverbs stood out this week that I wanted to share... "Blessed is he who is kind to the needy..." Proverbs 14:21. With Thanksgiving approaching, it is a perfect time to be thankful for what we have and to share with the needy. If you do not have extra material things or money to share, perhaps you could volunteer your time at a soup kitchen or women's shelter. You will be BLESSED indeed!

Hi, Nancy, thanks for visiting my site, it is great to hear from sister christians. It certainly is a great idea to count your blessings daily,it reminds me of our sermon Sunday Of "What would you sacrifice?" I need to be ever mindful of the small blessing that the Lord has given me. Thanks

Thanks for sharing from Proverbs.
This is truly the season for meeting the needs of all thoses around us. We are all the more aware of all that we have been blessed with... AND the blessing of not only the giving of our riches but of ourselves.
I desire a more simple life where I can be more aware of those opportunities to give my life away...

I have been reading Proverbs every day this year (well, most every day), to coincide with the day of the month. I especially love it in the Message - so very practical!

Thanksgiving is indeed a special time to stop and count our blessings and share with the less fortunate.
