Why I Love Reading From Proverbs and Psalms?

They are both powerful, uplifting, and beautiful works. With regards, it is summed up by King Solomon at Proverbs 1:7:

The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:

for gaining wisdom and instruction;
    for understanding words of insight;
for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
    doing what is right and just and fair;
for giving prudence to those who are simple,
    knowledge and discretion to the young—
let the wise listen and add to their learning,
    and let the discerning get guidance—
for understanding proverbs and parables,
    the sayings and riddles of the wise.

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

I want – and I hope all would want – wisdom, instruction, understanding, insight, and discernment from God. These are the things I pray for – in secret – each and every day throughout the day.

With regards to Psalms, it too contains sayings and words of wisdom. After each of the five books (collections) of Psalms, one can learn of the blessings from God.

R. Jerome Harris

No one of importance. A disciple (student) of Christ apart from the established religious systems who reasons, thinks and concludes matters for myself. Something is not right with the state of religion in the world. The real dichotomy is that we live in a world so full of religion, yet is an evil, immoral, and dangerous place to live. A mental and spiritual separation from this world that Jesus said his kingdom is no part of is the first step to a "break-through" to freedom and entry into a much larger spiritual world where God and Christ resides and the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God can be accessed.
