I would recommend that book as well if you do not have it yet! This book is organized a little differently. In Songs of Jesus, Keller breaks up the sections in order systematically, from Psalm 1 all the way to the end of Psalm In this devotional Keller selects a portion of Proverbs to read each day and to medicate on. Then he gives a teaching on that topic, using his own insights, other bible verses, and ends with a prayer!

The sections are not divided as in Songs of Jesus in order by Chapters. It does not begin with proverbs 1 and end with proverbs For example, the reading for November 6, Keller teaches on Proverbs "Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread, Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say 'Who is the LORD? Keller goes on to say "Money can corrupt us not only by its presence but by its absence. He then explains these verses in more detail and how we can apply this verse to our lives, answering questions including what it means by daily bread and should we as Christians divest ourselves of all money beyond a simple lifestyle?
Keller continues " What it does mean is at least this: Our homes, clothing, and lifestyle should be modest within our circle and neighborhood so we can be as generous as possible. The Christian community should model to the world as society in which wealth and possessions are seen as tools for serving others and not as a means of personal advancement and fulfillment. Of course Tim goes deeper into this topic for this day and for the following days!
So far I am really enjoying this devotional! The way it's organized by topics works really well!
For this review I've read several days of this month, plus reading over selected topics. This devotional goes very deep and is very thought provoking and edifying. It is meant to be read daily. It is saturated with scripture, including many scriptures outside of proverbs.

I recommend it to all who love to spend time with the Lord. All of us need God's Wisdom! As James wrote "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally without reproach, and it will be given to you.
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord. Just came home to find this in its package! I preordered it as soon as I had the option to. Do yourself a favor and purchase both!
Meditate on them daily! As a 23 year old male that is a Firefighter, I can definitely say I'm excited to start using " God's Windom for navigating life ".

I mean, who wouldn't want the book of knowledge in a daily devotional broken down by Tim Keller! Especially in today's world! Definitely not the typical tripe seen in mass churches today or put out by the surface evangelical establishment. These are penetrating, provocative daily expositions on real world matters that deeply probe into questions of values, moral behavior, the meaning of human life, and right conduct.
Must have wisdom literature distilled by Keller for truth seekers the world over. Could not more highly recommend.

Here is the spolier from the last day Prayer: Lord, I have learned that wisdom is only a by-product of wanting something more than wisdom—to see God! Aim at knowing you, and you get wisdom thrown in. Aim just at wisdom—in order to be successful—and you get neither. At last I see it.
