Thank you for stopping by this brand new ministry blog. As you can see, there’s not much, for now. But starting in April, Proverbial Thought will become a continually growing commentary on the book of Proverbs.
The contributors to Proverbial Thought want to see this site become a regular stopping place for those seeking daily wisdom from God’s word. Each day a new proverb will be posted, along with a commentary/devotional thought from one of several writers. By God’s grace, those who visit here will be encouraged, challenged, and motivated to meditate on Scripture, thereby growing in true wisdom.
Solomon said “…wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it” (Proverbs 8:11). So, each time you come back to Proverbial Thought, our prayer is that you increase in true riches.

I just sent a young blogging friend, Joshua Huffman, in your direction. He is starting a year-long series on Proverbs, as of today, April 1, on his blog! Sounds familiar eh???
Not sure of his theological training or background, but very sure of his young dedication to Christ. I believe he is 20 years of age. Here is a link to his blog and I think you may be able to assist him in this project or vice-versa so I wanted to get you in contact with each other…
http://communionwithjesus.wordpress.com/ is his blog. Blessings on this endeavor.

Theological training? Who’s got theological training? You’re not talking about me, are you? Wait till you read a post from Grady Davidson – HE has theological training. I’m just an amateur.
Seriously, though, thanks for the “like” and the suggestion. I’ll definitely pay him a cyber-visit.

Today he even gave a “shout out” and a link to your site! Of course I got no credit for connecting him to you…par for the course hehe. I told him it was like St Andrew, who introduced St Peter to Jesus…people remember Andrew vaguely but St Peter is known by all. Oh well hehe. Of course I was teasing. He is a tremendous young man and I think is very delighted to have your site to compare and get another perspective from. When I was 20 I would not have dreamed of such a project. Heck I am 56 and I so far have not dreamed of such a project! God bless you guys, both sites are great in different ways, and, you definitely have something good going for you. And I need that daily “double whammy” of wisdom! Thanks again.

I have enjoyed reading his work, as well. Seeing the two perspectives makes it so amazing! For what it is worth, I have always liked St. Andrew, and I have verbally and through text/Facebook told many people that “My Catholic blogging brother Richard introduced us to a young man also blogging through Proverbs.”
That will teach you! Or something …
Many blessings, Richard! Thank you!

I consider myself taught!!! God bless you Dan…and all of you! I guess it is not so bad to be an “Andrew” after all. Besides I would rather be called Andy than Petey. God bless you too!
