31 Day Series On The Book of Proverbs on WeUsed2bu’s Fb Page

Submitted by on September 30, 2012 – 9:00 amNo Comment

When the Lord appointed Solomon as king he visited him in a dream and said, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!” Solomon humbly saw the need for greater wisdom to rule and lead God’s people so instead of riches or a long life he asked God for wisdom to govern His people. Solomon desired to have an understanding heart and to know the difference between right and wrong. This greatly pleased our Lord so He gave him the desire of his heart. King Solomon had a wise and understanding heart such as no one else has had or ever will have. (1 Kings 3:5-15)

King Solomon wrote about 90% of the book of Proverbs. The book of Proverbs is full of wise counsel, instruction, direction, and correction for our daily lives.  Proverbs 1:1-4 says that the book of Proverbs serves to;

• Help them understand the insights of the wise.

• Teach people to live disciplined and successful lives

• Help them do what is right, just, and fair.

• Give insight to the simple

• Give knowledge and discernment to the young

Here’s what the Tyndale Discover God Study Bible, New Living Translation has to say in it’s overview of the book of Proverbs:

The purpose of the book of Proverbs is to impart skills for living wisely in a fallen world. One of the biggest differences between biblical and modern society is the status of those considered to be wise. Today, it is seen as more important to be wealthy, smart, popular, or widely known than to be wise. Perhaps the reason wisdom appears to be largely absent from modern culture is because the very source of wisdom is missing: the fear of the Lord.

Proverbs exist as a testimony to the belief around God’s people that success in life comes from fearing the Lord, and that skill in living can be taught and transffered from one generation to the next. The most important concept in the book is the Hebrew idea of “skill”. This term was used in a variety of ways, such as describing the excellence necessary to sew the high priest’s garments (Exodus 28:3), build the Tabernalce (Exodus 31:3), govern a nation (1 Kings 4:29), and live life (Proverbs 2:2). The skill of living learned in context of a reverence for God-this is the heart of biblical wisdom.

In closing I leave with some nuggets of wisdom from the book of Proverbs:

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23

“Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:2-5

“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then He will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.” Proverbs 3:9-10

“All who fear the Lord will hate evil. Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance, corruption and perverse speech.” Proverbs 8:13

“So don’t bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you. But correct the wise, and they will love you. Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.” Proverbs 9: 8-9

Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.” Proverbs 9:10

“A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays clam when insulted.” Proverbs 12:16

“Those who control their tongue will have a long-life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.” Proverbs 13:3
