Today’s proverb paints a beautiful picture of the intricacy and wisdom with which God created the earth. As you read, picture what it’s describing in your mind.

Exodus 30:11-31:18:

  • 15 – How had people become rich or poor since they all came out of slavery and all have been wandering in the desert? Possibly some had plundered the Egyptians more fiercely than others.
  • 1-6 – Bezalel and Oholiab probably thought their talents were going to waste as they made bricks in Egypt and wandered in the desert, but God had a plan to use them.
  • 16 – Keeping the Sabbath holy is resting and dedicating a day to only worship God.

Matthew 26:47-68:

  • 51-54 – How often do we take matters into our own hands instead of trusting God’s plan for us?
  • 59-64 – The religious leaders have been trying to trick Jesus into saying something they can arrest him for throughout his ministry. Jesus calling himself the Son of Man and referencing that he would sit at the right hand of Power seems to be enough.

Psalm 32:1-11:

  • This is one of many Psalms where David references various ways God protects him. David was often at war and many nations were against Israel so it makes sense that he would relate to God in this way.

Proverbs 8:27-32:

  • God created the earth with wisdom – this makes sense because of the complex balance and intricacies in the environment.
