Proverbs ~ Wisdom Lives Here!
Proverbs, wisdom given to us helping each person to live life skillfully. It is the Old Testaments’ book on wisdom and how to use it in everyday life. Wonderful wisdom lives here!
Proverbs; It may be an old book but it has the “stuff” to take us on a new and fulfilling road in life. King Solomon was the principle writer under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. His pithy questions and statements gives us memorable wisdom to live an abundant life. A life, not without struggles, but meaningful wisdom to overcome whatever life throws at us. This book gives its’ reader wisdom and instruction. Wisdom is the “skill” and instruction is the “discipline” to carry out what we have learned from day to day.
“A wise man will hear and increase knowledge, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.” Proverbs 1: 5.
It appears to me that here are writings I should read if I want to increase my knowledge. Why would I not want to read this book when it is so available to me? If someone would suggest he knew a place where I could get more understanding about how to live successfully, why would I not jump at the opportunity? This book lays dormant in many homes across America and yet it contains a storehouse of wisdom. Laid out in 31 chapters, with each chapter an easy 10 minute read.
“The person who does not read has little advantage over the person who cannot read.” anonymous
I’m currently writing notes to shed light on some of the succinct instruction given in this wonderful book. Please leave a comment, suggestion or a question for me.
Living with wisdom and great instruction on The Richer Side of Life.
