WWJHR--What would Jesus have Read?

Submitted by Art Fox on Wed, 03/14/2018 - 00:00

Been reading a book that says that we must not miss the fact that Christ is revealed in Proverbs, while not ignoring the wisdom there. Now, spent some time the other day reading chapters 1-5 and was struck by the filial language of father and soon and even mother, and then this thought occurred to me. Jesus, as a boy, would have read the book as being the inspired word of his Father in Heaven. Thus the language of words like Listen my son… would have been formative in his approach to the book of Proverbs—he was being taught by his Father how to love as a man on earth.

What even very little faith can do

Not a mountain but…. One of the church’s favorite verses is Christ’s promise that even if our faith is but the size of a mustard seed we can say to a mountain, “Be removed and cast into the sea” and it will happen. This story is about my faith and it is both funny and heart warming, because the Lord, once again, did over and above what I expected.

I am a Christian who is also a minister. I trust in Jesus Christ and his atoning work on the Cross for my sins. He is my everything, though I am inconsistent and unworthy. My hope is to reflect on and share with you what God is teaching with the hope that it will build you up in your faith or even lead you to faith in Christ.
