Here is an easy way to keep reading the Bible in a way that applies it to your everyday life:

Take the day of the month and find the chapter in Proverbs for that day.  Read the chapter for wise living principles.  Then pick out one that really hits you and think about it all day.  Chew on it as time and activity allow. Ask yourself, how can I improve my life by implementing this into my personal and family life?

Proverbs are practical, helpful, and short.  Teens respond well to them for those reasons.  I used to keep a book of Proverbs on top of the refrigerator where it was handy.  As the girls passed thru the kitchen, I’d read one quickly in the passing.  Then I’d pray God would bring it to their minds again as they rode horses or played tennis or golf.

“In all labor there is profit.

But idle chatter leads only to poverty.”  Proverbs 14:23
