The BIBS Devotional Book is a daily Bible reading and study plan. It is designed to guide the reader in both an in-depth study of a certain short passage every day, as well as weekly overview readings of the surrounding chapters to provide context. Note from the author: "There are two main reasons I do not often use or recommend most devotional books or most things written for teens. First, they cater to this false idea that teens are somehow less intelligent and need things 'dumbed down' for them to get it. Wrong! Those in their teen years are highly motivated to excel at whatever they're challenged to do. BIBS simply challenges them to know their Bibles if they're up to it. "Second, most devotionals have the reader read very little of the Bible and think very little for himself. Then, if there is a biblical text to read--and sometimes it is only one verse(!)--the devotional tells the reader what to think about that text. God's Word IS saying something in every text, but discovering it for myself and applying it to myself is much more lasting. Following the BIBS format offers both the depths of Scripture AND the flow of thought of the context of Scripture. It is a guide to help you hear from God and a tool to help you understand and apply His desires for your life." B.I.B.S. Created in 2012. All quotations use the King James Bible. PREFACE TO THIS EDITION What started as a series of Wednesday night Bible study lessons has since blossomed to this book (as well as the whole suite of books). The Teens of Faith (the youth group of our church) benefited spiritually as they worked through this devotional day by day. Those who completed the devotional were able to attend our first missions trip to Alaska, and the weekly Wednesday night check-ins were refreshing and challenging (hence the Thursday-to-Wednesday layout). The book of Proverbs is full of riches, and is specifically written to young people. At its heart is a call to fear God. God's wisdom is provided only in a fearful, earnest search for it. Wise people do not just fall into wisdom; they search it out, as if searching for hidden treasure. Beginning in 2015, the Teens of Faith Sunday school class has been studying the book of Proverbs. The theme question of the series is "What is the wise thing to do?" Since Bible preaching is crucial to any Christian's spiritual walk, our teens benefit by using their personal devotions as a means to further drive home what they receive through weekly preaching. Although you might not hear these texts explained through preaching, we pray they sink in as you perform your own study using the BIBS process.
