Scripture

Proverbs 27

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How should one act upon achieving an accomplishment or doing something praiseworthy (2)? What is the author saying in verse 17?

Application

Do I “toot my own horn”? Do I have godly people in my life who are mutual “sharpening tools”?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, Remind me not to sing my own praises, for nothing I do could be accomplished without You anyway. Show me which people in my life You want to be my “sharpeners,” and lead me in the best way to help “sharpen” them. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
