Scripture for the day is Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

BONUS DAY! On this day when devotion books do not have an assigned devotion, we are reminded that today is a bonus day, an extra day in the calendar. What are we to do with our bonus day? Take time to pray, give thanks, and cherish the days given to us. Also, let us take time to honor our God. As Proverbs reminds us, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. That does not mean fear as in being afraid. It means respect, honor, and giving our God, the creator of everything, all that is due the Lord. Knowledge of God is the beginning of understanding. None of us can fully understand, but we are on the right path if we are seeking knowledge of the Holy One. Whatever you do with this day, take some time to honor God, study God’s Word, and pray.

Loving God, thank you for this bonus day and for each and every day you give us. Help us to grow in knowledge and understanding of you and your purpose for our lives. Amen.
