Daily Bread on the Kitchen Counter
It has become a practice of late to keep one of my Bibles on my kitchen island. It makes it so simple to read a verse here and there as I spend time in the kitchen. I have read that Ruth Graham (Mrs. Billy Graham) did this when she was busy raising 5 young chlldren with her husband traveling much of the time. With an empty nest my time is not limited like it was with Mrs. Graham but I simply like doing this and enjoying spiritual nourishment from my kitchen as I go about my day.
Each day I try to read one of the Proverbs (31 days - 31 Proverbs). Some gems in today's reading:
Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
Proverbs 21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
Proverbs 21:23 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
Proverbs 21:30 There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.
