Day 9 – Strength Training

Also included in both Morning and Evening prayer is a daily reading from the Proverbs which I have called the Daily Sage Intake. There is a link provided that will take you to the Daily Sage Intake page. Just scroll down to the link for the reading for the day. When you finish reading the Proverbs, you should also say the Gloria Patria.

The chapter of Proverbs of the day is said. At the end of the chapter of Proverbs is said

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

In much the same way that the Psalms help us develop and season (psalt) our prayer lives, the Proverbs help to develop the way that we live out our life “in Christ” in a fallen world on a broken planet. The Proverbs give us wisdom and guidance as we try to live by doing the next right thing and help us to be “the light of the world”. The Daily Sage Intake includes a morning and evening reading of the Proverbs which will have you reading all 31 Proverbs, twice each month. Combined with the Daily Psalt Intake readings this will provide a strong foundation for your devotional life.

The Proverbs are usually short but rather intense sentences. They are sometimes arranged so that two sentences kind of illustrate each other. At other times they appear sort of randomly. What they all do, however, is to point out good and evil, giving us wisdom and helping us to live by choosing to do the next right thing!
