Using Proverbs

I was thinking about how my blog is going. I picked the name ProverbialPilgrimage because of my love and use of Proverbs and I haven't threaded in any Proverbs in my blogs! So...I want to share a couple of Proverbs! My first day of work was May 13, in Proverbs 13 I noted- verse 10..Pride leads to arguments: those who take advice are wise. I applied this to my job. I must not be proud and think I know it all...I must listen and learn and take advice from my boss and co-workers. I also noted verse 18 If you ignore criticism you will end in poverty and disgrace: if you accept criticism you will be honored. I need to be prepared for criticism. I can't expect to do everything right. I must submit to authority and prepare myself to be gracious and humble. After being the boss for so many years I need to be on guard.

Yesterday our church had a leadership appreciation event. While we were there, our Pastor told us about a spiritual campaign that we are planning for the fall. We were all given the book "Living a Life On Loan" by Rick Rusaw and Eric Swanson. We will be putting our "service" on a new and higher level. I thought of Proverbs 14:22 If you plot evil, you will be lost; but if you plan good, you will be granted unfailing love and faithfulness. I'm so glad my church is planning "Good" I know we all be blessed.

Please keep the proverbs coming. They give me inspiration and I pass them along.
