We are getting closer and closer to the last proverb, believe it or not. It won’t be long until we finish the book of Proverbs with a final “thought” from 31:31 on the first day of March, 2014. I don’t know about you, but it will be both a sad and a happy day for me.
I am looking forward to completing this project, for it will have been two years in the making. I am also looking forward to having the posts compiled and published into one complete work (possibly multiple volumes) which can be easily accessed and used as a daily devotional, or simply a commentary like no other.
On the other hand, it will be sad that our writers will not be working together on this voluminous endevor. A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since we first started Proverbial Thought, and I have been truly blessed to collaborate with such fine people. God has most definitely used our study to mutually encourage each other. But more specifically, the Holy Spirit has certainly guided each one of us, never leaving the selection of posts to chance. This study could be viewed as a journal of our spiritual journeys through two years of life.
Now, if you are a regular reader, you may notice, from time to time, that we miss a day or two of posts. That is usually my fault, to be honest. I am not the busiest member of our group (I think David is), but I do get sidetracked by church, work, and family issues. I have, so to speak, too many irons in the fire.
Therefore, I hope you don’t mind that from time to time “thoughts” will be posted out of order. However, even when they are, it seems that what is posted late is still posted right on time. God knows what we need when we need it.

Friends, I would love to hear how Proverbial Thought has impacted your life, or the life of someone you know. I would also love to hear how you may be using what has been written in your Bible study or devotions. Has there been a time when you opened up a post, read it, and knew in your heart that God had spoken to you? We would love to hear about it.
Let me tell you a little bit about what I have personally been doing. Even though I pastor a church, I also teach an adult Sunday School class. Each week we read through a chapter of Proverbs once a day, then on the next Sunday morning we gather together and discuss the chapter, focusing on what passages stood out the most to each of us. As a study help, each week I print off next week’s chapter from Proverbial Thought. Each person in class takes his/her copy home to read along with the chapter for the week. What do you think of that idea? The great thing is that they also help me edit as we go
Seriously, we appreciate all of you. Thank you for taking time to read Proverbial Thought. You are a blessing!
