PROVERBS

Wisdom…Where Does It Begin?

Uncommon Sense

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

“To know wisdom and instruction, to perceive the words of understanding, to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity; to give prudence to the simple,
to the young man knowledge and discretion—A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, to understand a proverb and an enigma,
the words of the wise and their riddles.  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”    Proverbs 1:1-7 (NKJV)

Proverbs warns that it is a fool who despises wisdom and instruction.  The book of Proverbs is all about sharing insights with the young and old so that they can grow in knowledge and understanding.  It is the fear of God, or holy reverent fear of respect and awe, that starts a believer out on his acquisition of wisdom and knowledge.  I pray you search out the Proverbs yourself, words so wisely stated by Solomon.  May you gain much understanding through your quest to better know your God.

  6. I love Proverbs. Years ago, a former pastor taught us to read the ‘proverbs chapter corresponding to the day of the month’ every day. Although I still cannot quote them as much as I want, if I hear the beginning of one, I can usually finish it. And I believe that by doing so, chances of His wisdom filing my life are greater. Thanks

  7. I once heard from a pastor, that there are only two tests that we ever face in our lives, that is the test of what to do when we suffer, and what we do when we succeed. These tests have two results, either they result in wisdom (if we “pass”) or they result in foolishness (if we “fail”). Thank you for your post, it is cool to see other Christians diving into topics often overlooked like wisdom.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
