"The Richest Man Who Ever Lived"

Last Update: May 15, 2015

Good evening, everyone! =)

A few years ago, I went to Bible College for a semester. I didn't manage to make it through the entire year, but I still was able to take away some awesome principles and a great learning experience overall. Now before you exit the post on the premise of me being a "Bible Thumper", I encourage you to read on, because I think anyone, religious or otherwise, can benefit from this particular routine(which I will get to in a couple sentences, keehee)...

The teacher I got the most out of was a pastor in Calgary who deeply believed in the importance of learning and gaining new knowledge every day, which is something I truly believe in as well.

He gave us this book titled "The Richest Man Who Ever Lived" by K. Scott. This author wrote about the importance of reading the book of Proverbs, written by King Solomon Waay back in the "Bible Times". ;)

Now whether or not you believe there was indeed a King Solomon, the book of Proverbs is still an insightful read, and a great daily reminder of what our focus should be on throughout our lives.

This author encouraged us to read a chapter of Proverbs every day, and write down any neat sayings/instructions that we felt was good advice. It's funny to me, because a lot of the book seems to shout out common sense, but it's amazing how hard it is for us to actually apply what it is telling us to do.

Throughout Proverbs, it basically cautions us to heed advice, and develop a desire for knowledge and, most importantly, wisdom (plus advice on a couple others things, as well). I think of it as my dose of daily wisdom and tips, as it has really helped motivate me to keep learning and soaking in the amazing knowledge that Wealthy Affiliate, and the world in general, offers! ^_^

Think of it as a 31-Day Challenge to read a chapter of Proverbs a day and take daily notes, and see if it makes a difference for you, too. =) =)

I wish you the most success and happiness this world and more can offer! <3

Sincerely,

Kylie

That's great. Even for those who don't believe the Bible, history tells of King Solomon and his wisdom.

I too read Proverbs most often on a daily basis and I couldn't agree with you more! Blessings, Christa :)

Yes it is Kylie! I also like to include Psalms on a daily basis along with wherever I am led! :)

That's an awesome idea! Psalms is so uplifting! I don't know if you know who Joyce Meyers is, but I have been reading a daily devotional on her site every morning... She is one of my role models for sure. =) Thought maybe you might have heard of her. ^_^

I always liked Psalms then one day I read how Billy Graham suggested reading 5 Psalms a day which takes you through the book once a month. He even had a book once that set it up so their were a few more of the shorter ones together so there weren't 5 when reading the longer ones. I don't get them done every month but most months. Yes I have heard of her and have tried to listen to her but there is something that just doesn't set well with me. I know she is very well liked and shares a lot of great truth so maybe it is just me.

My mother isn't a huge fan of her either; she likes the premise of her teachings, but just doesn't connect with her, if that makes sense. That is a good idea! I'll have to look up Billy Graham's method online! Thanks for the idea! ^_^

Yes that makes total sense, it is a lack of heart connection, and when I don't have that I listen to Holy Spirit. You are very welcome! :)
And remember John 17 is Jesus prayer over you! It is extra special! :)
