For the month of May, we’ll take a brief look at 31 wise sayings from Proverbs 11, that’s one proverb a day…
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life and a wise person captivates people.Proverbs 11:30, Christian Standard Bible
Want to change the world and make it a better place? Even if the scope of your reach is just your neighborhood, Solomon tells us how to do it.
Pursue righteousness and wisdom.
Righteousness here is moral character, particular moral character that is found by trusting in Jesus and following his ways. Wisdom is taking the information, knowledge, and understanding we have and using it for good. So, we live to love others well, show them Jesus, and meet their needs.
It’s such daily involvement in the lives of others that will change the world as hearts change one person at a time.
