This Sunday we kick of a new series from the book of Proverbs. I'm looking forward to digging in and learning all I can about God's wisdom for life. I hope you explore the wisdom of Proverbs with me!
Proverbs is a book in the Old Testament written around 950-700 BC by Solomon and a few others. According to 1 Kings 4:32, Solomon spoke thousands of proverbs and songs. His "proverbs" (i.e. a condensed comparison or parable) cover topics such as . . .
(1) the fear of the Lord,
(2) avoiding bad company,
(3) trusting and honoring God,
(4) showing kindness and generosity to others,
(5) finance, wealth, and poverty,
(6) sexuality and pleasure (now I've got your attention, right?!), and
(7) the joy of wise living.
Plus many other topics as well.
This Sunday, we begin with the "fear of the Lord", so I will leave you with Proverbs 1:7, "the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
Lord make me wise as I learn to walk in the "fear of the Lord". Pastor Tom
