The Love Dare Part 21: Bible Time

Be intentional today about making a time to pray and read your Bible. Try reading a chapter out of Proverbs each day (there are thiry-one - a full month's supply), or readin a chapter in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). As you do, immerse yourself in the love and promises God has for you. This will add to your growth as you walk with Him.
Today's dare reveals a pattern in the second half of the book. These dares are more about you than your spouse. I think I figured out the pattern of this book a while back, and it's now being confirmed. The pattern is genius really. I'll reveal the whole tapestry when I finish the book, but until then I'll keep going. I picked Proverbs, and started reading chapter 1. I haven't read through Proverbs since, probably high school I guess. Those little nuggets of wisdom aren't that compelling reading once you know most of them. However, I did not a couple of neat things that I had forgotten.
The first is "wisdom," a female embodiment who speaks in the second half of chapter one, is a vindictive woman. She says that because the fools didn't listen to her she'll laugh at their disaster and mock them in calamity. I wonder if some Christians take this verse too seriously. Or if they equate themselves with wisdom.
