Here's a good written devotional called "Follow the Blueprint" by James MacDonald. I had to register to access their extensive archive, but I like his preaching, so I figured it was worth it. It was free.

A written sermon called "How to Become Wise" from Desiring God Community Church in Charlotte, NC. There is no registration necessary to access this one. 

Here is a sermon, in both written and audio form, from John Piper called "Get Wisdom." I read it, and it was very good. It goes over the five ways the Bible tells us to become wise, so if you have a student (and we should all really be students all of our lives) this would be a good one to try. The audio version is good, too, but I read much faster than I can listen, so I only heard about a fourth of the sermon (and I was reading while I listened, so I guess what I am saying is that John Piper is a good spaker).

Here's a bonus talk you might want to try:

For those of you who are joining me here on Sunday, click on THIS LINK to go to Blue Behemoth and check out today's freebie track. I have heard How to Think Like a Christian many times and it is definitely worth listening to (I think that learning to think like a Christian is part of getting wise). You will have to set up a quick FREE account, but you will then be able to download 1-2 new audio tracks daily for FREE!!

I also found a series of sermons called "Wisdom Works" from Houston's First Baptist Church that I started listening to tonight (I listened to the first sermon), and I would like to share it with you. However, I could not find a way to get a link to each sermon directly. You have to go to the general download page, and then scroll down to find the four-sermon series on Proverbs. It is interesting that with all of the wisdom that is available in the book of Proverbs, that there are not more sermons available focusing on that particular book. I do think this series will be interesting and will challenge me to focus more on Proverbs this week.

I have heard many times, and done it myself from time to time, that a good way to start your day is to read out of the chapter of Proverbs that corresponds with each particular day of the month. I know of some who do this over and over again throughout their lives. I have read through the book more than once, and many of the verses are thoughtfully underlined in my Bible, but it is not currently something I do daily.

Can you imagine the impact of years of absorbing the same verses in Proverbs over and over again? All the wisdom Solomon asked for (and was given) available for us in easy to understand format...do you tap this incredible resource regularly? I am thinking that we all should. What would the world be like if we all lived according to this wise advice? It's something to consider as you walk through this next week.

Blessings to you and yours for a wonderful (and wise) week,

Heather
