100 Verses - Week 27

We are officially beyond the halfway point, which is kind of exciting, and something to be proud of. For those of you who are still here and still participating, lean in, close your eyes, imagine now I am giving you a firm pat on the back. Can you feel it? Try harder to imagine it, you deserve it! It is such a wise choice to choose to fill your heart with the Word of God. Good for you!

Speaking of wisdom, this week's verses both come from what is known as "The Book of Wisdom," AKA the book of Proverbs. So let's get right to the point and here are this week's verses:

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:7

A gentle answer turns away anger,
but a harsh word stirs up wrath."

Proverbs 15:1

The 100 Verse Challenge is based on Robert J. Morgan's book "100 Verses Everyone Should Know by Heart."
