Daily Proverb

I was listening to Leighton Smith earlier in the year talking about a book that was worth reading. It is called The Richest Man Who Ever Lived: King Solomon’s Secrets to Success, Wealth, and Happiness by Steven K. Scott.

Anyway one of the recommendation of the book is to read a chapter of the Book of Proverbs a day, every day. It is easy to remember where you are up to because there are 31 chapters. Read one each day corresponding to the day of the month. Some months, of course, you will need to read 2 or three on chapters on the last day but you get the picture.

Get the book and follow the plan. It seems to be working for me.

From today I will post a daily proverb. Today it is Proverbs 6.

6 Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones.
Learn from their ways and become wise!
7 Though they have no prince
or governor or ruler to make them work,
8 they labor hard all summer,
gathering food for the winter.
9 But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep?
When will you wake up?
10 A little extra sleep, a little more slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
11 then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit;
scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
