Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Wisdom: Week 3, Day 5: Proverbs 30 and 31

Summary of Proverbs 30

“I am weary, God, but I can prevail.” Every word of God is flawless. He is our shield to take refuge.

Summary of Proverbs 31

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.

A wife of noble character is worth far more than rubies. She lacks nothing of value. She brings her husband good. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. Her lamp does not go out at night. She helps the poor. Her children arise and call her blessed. Woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Questions for Proverbs 30 and 31

12) “I am weary, God, but I can prevail.” It gives me the will to keep going and striving for my goals.

13) She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. I take my job seriously, and I try to be the best wife and mom possible.

14) I’m not really feeling like I lead in anything right now, so unsure on this one.

Conclusions to Wordgo Study of Wisdom Proverbs 30 and 31

I haven’t read the wife of noble character passage for a while. This is encouraging as sometimes I think I’m not all that noble.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Wisdom: Week 3, Day 4: Proverbs 28 and 29

Summary of Proverbs 28

Righteous are bold as a lion. Those who seek God understand what is right. Blessed are those who tremble before God. A faithful person will be richly blessed. Those who trust in the Lord will prosper. Those who give to the poor will lack nothing.

Summary of Proverbs 29

Discipline your children, and they will give you peace. They will bring you the delights you desire. The lowly in spirit gain honor. Whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. The righteous care about justice.

Questions for Proverbs 28 and 29

9) Leaders maintain order, support the poor, and righteous rulers cause their people to rejoice. Unsure. I don’t think I lead at all in my community.

10) Work hard and give to the poor. Be discerning. A faithful person will be richly blessed. Unsure what will change. Hopefully, God’s will be done.

11) When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding. I think people know when good people are in charge and bad people are. Our lives are better when our leaders look out for our best interests.

Conclusions to Wordgo Study of Wisdom Proverbs 28 and 29

Lots of words on authority and power. Only fearing the Lord leads to wisdom.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Wisdom: Week 3, Day 3: Proverbs 14 and 16

Summary of Proverbs 14

Wise woman builds her house with her own hands. Whoever fears the Lord walks uprightly. Stay away from fools. The tent of the upright will flourish. The wise fear the Lord and shun evil. All hard work brings a profit. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life. Whoever is patient has great understanding.

Summary of Proverbs 16

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans. The Lord works out everything to its proper end. Do not be proud at heart. How much better to get wisdom than gold. Pride goes before destruction. Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness. Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.

Questions for Proverbs 14 and 16

6) They fear the Lord, they are honest, discerning, and thoughtful. They are kind, patient, and humble. Patient and humble.

7) God is in charge. He knows my next steps. He will lead and guide me.

8 ) A fool’s mouth lashes out with pride, but the lips of the wise protect them. Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Kings take pleasure in honest lips. The lips of a king speak as an oracle, and his mouth does not betray justice. I have always been curt, so I’m always working on my mouth. I now take my time more before I speak and take the time I need before I respond. I try to be understanding and nice in all my communications.

Conclusions to Wordgo Study of Wisdom Proverbs 14 and 16

Such great words of wisdom in Proverbs. I really should be reading this all the time.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Ruth: Week 2, Day 2: Psalm 13 with Ruth 1:20-22

SUMMARY OF PSALM 13

David asks the Lord how long he will forget him or turn away from him. How long must he have sorrow in his heart and his enemies triumph over him? David pleads with the Lord to answer him and to give him light to see by. He trusts in God’s unfailing love, and he rejoices in God’s salvation. He will sing to God.

SUMMARY OF RUTH 1:20-22

Naomi renames herself Mara, meaning bitter because God has made her life bitter and brought misfortune upon her. Naomi and Ruth arrived in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.

QUESTIONS FOR PSALM 13 WITH RUTH 1:20-22

3 ) They are both angry at God for the misfortunes they have suffered in life and are questioning him. Yet, both are still faithful to him. Still. I’m unsure how angry I get. I usually accept what happens to me in life.

4 ) I think it’s just trusting that God will provide through the hard times and take care of you on the other side of hard times. Hard times are usually followed by good times.

5 ) I listen to songs that offer me hope and encouragement, that motivate me, that speak about the good times and overcoming. They serve to lift me up and brighten my day, as well as give me strength to keep persevering even though I don’t feel like it.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO PSALM 13 WITH RUTH 1:20-22

I love how you can be angry at God and even question why, but that doesn’t mean you don’t trust in his authority or his knowledge to orchestrate your life. Great lesson.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 4, Day 1: Hebrews 11:1-14

SUMMARY OF HEBREWS 11:1-14

Faith is being sure of what you cannot see and what you hope for. Faith is what allows us to believe God created the heavens and the earth. By faith, Abel offered God better sacrifices than Cain. By faith, God took Enoch away so he didn’t experience death.

You have to have faith to please God. Noah built an ark out of faith and thus became heir of the righteous. By faith Abraham left Ur to go where God told him to go. He and his sons became heirs of the promised land and had children and many descendants. They did not receive their inheritance while living; only after death.

QUESTIONS FOR HEBREWS 11:1-14

1 ) Faith is being sure of what you cannot see and what you hope for. Faith is believing Jesus is the son of God, granting us forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation. People today think of faith as having trust in someone or something. Faith is having trust but it’s believing in the unseen that is the difference.

2 ) Faith is doing things you believe is in God’s will even though you have no idea of the consequences or what lies ahead like Abraham. Moving somewhere else in the country or doing something out of a calling. I think it’s very similar today as it was in Jesus’s time.

3 ) I like the example of Noah the best — building an ark when people thought he was crazy. My prayer is to keep following the ways of God even though they don’t make sense to me or to anyone around me.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO HEBREWS 11:1-14

Another classic passage that is super important to the Christian faith. Having faith is simply believing in a God unseen. Seems simple, but so many people miss God this way.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 3, Day 3: Hebrews 9:11-28

SUMMARY OF HEBREWS 9:11-28

Christ is the mediator of the new covenant. He entered the Most Holy Place by his own blood that offered eternal redemption. The blood of Christ cleanses us inwardly and outwardly. We are now set free from our sins and able to inherit eternal life.

The Old Covenant required that everything has to be cleansed with blood in order to be forgiven. He offered himself one time as the eternal sacrifice. He will appear a second time to bring salvation to those who await him.

QUESTIONS FOR HEBREWS 9:11-28

7) Christ is the mediator of the new covenant. He entered the Most Holy Place by his own blood that offered eternal redemption. The blood of Christ cleanses us inwardly and outwardly. We are now set free from our sins and able to inherit eternal life. It’s important because it gives us eternal life, which the Old Covenant could not do.

8 ) Immeasurable gratitude. A desire to be like him. An acceptance of his sacrifice for my sins.

9) Jesus offers the New Covenant to us by his one sacrifice for us all. It is received by those who accept his sacrifice on the cross for us and who believe in him.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO HEBREWS 9;11-28

Christ died once for us for our eternal inheritance. When you grasp that fact, nothing else in your world — none of your problems — matters.
