As we are reading one chapter a day in the book of Proverbs, there are so many real-life applications we can apply to our daily lives. As I mentioned before, the book of Proverbs is filled with “proverbs,” which are wise sayings to apply to our everyday life. Let’s take a look at a few of these life applications now.
- Proverbs 14:4 This verse is a cycle.
- If you don’t have an ox, you won’t have a mess. However, you won’t have as great a harvest without one either.
- If you want the best harvest, you need an ox, but be prepared for a mess to come with it.
- Weigh your options – All things come at a price. What are you willing to pay? What are you willing to forfeit?
- Proverbs 15:1
- This verse is so true – Talk about real-world applications! I used to have this verse hanging in my classroom. When the students were having trouble with parents, siblings, peers, and even teachers, I would teach this concept and have them experiment with it. It works!
- When you can answer angry tones with a calm voice and attitude, you end up with the power.
- You get to witness the other person change their tone and attitude. You control the situation.
- Proverbs 17:5a
- When you make fun of people, you are really insulting God and His handiwork.
- Imagine creating something (recipe, artwork, craft, music, photography, etc…) and people making fun of it. They wouldn’t really be mocking the thing you created but the way you created it. You would be insulted.
- In the same way, when we mock people (of whom were created by God), we are insulting Him!
I would love for you to join me weekly as I read the Word to find life applications to use daily. I love to hear your input as well.
Life Application Resources
If you have joined me recently, these weekly life applications from the Bible are examples of some of the comments I write in the Bibles I am giving to my grandchildren when they graduate from high school. Click here to see the post where I explain this eternal gift idea.
The rose colored Bible is the one I am using for my youngest granddaughter, and I really love it! The brown study Bible is the one Jay uses.
I pray these weekly life applications help you in some way. Please share any encouragement and lessons you have learned this week. I would love to hear your thoughts.
