‘The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
for gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
for receiving instruction in prudent behaviour,
doing what is right and just and fair;
for giving prudence to those who are simple,
knowledge and discretion to the young—
let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.‘
What is the one common thread with every poor decision you’ve ever made?
I know that sounds harsh to hear but it is true isn’t it? With every poor decision you’ve ever made, it was you who were were involved, in fact it was you who made that decision.
The book of Proverbs is committed to helping us make better decisions and have fewer regrets. What we will discover within in these pages of Proverbs is the ability to receive knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
Proverbs is not only to enrich your knowledge, understanding and wisdom but to live a prudent life that walks by right, just and fair. To be clear our lives will be for the better because we have taken time to hear and understand what wisdom is calling us to.
No doubt in my mind, Proverbs, is still relevant today for all who will listen, who want to grow and those that desire an impactful life.
TODAY take time to read Proverbs 1 and begin this journey with me.
