These proverbs will give insight to the simple, knowledge and discernment to the young. Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser .... The fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:5, 7

The book of Proverbs is a collection of wise sayings that express timeless truth and are brief and to the point. Wisdom is the key word of the book and basically means “skill in living." Proverbs contains a gold mine of biblical theology, reflecting themes of Scripture brought to the level of practical righteousness, by addressing man’s ethical choices, calling into question how he thinks, lives and manages his daily life in light of divine truth. More specifically, Proverbs calls man to live as the Creator intended him to live when He made man. The recurring promise of Proverbs is that generally the wise (the righteousness who obey God) live longer, prosper, and experience joy and the goodness of God temporally, while fools suffer shame and death (Condensed from Discover Books of the Bible by Ken Cayce).

The fear of the Lord is mentioned 14 times in the book of Proverbs and is said to be the foundation of true knowledge. As Tom Main said in his message a couple of weeks ago, the "Fear of the Lord" involves a reverence for God where we truly embrace the fact that "God is God and we are not." A "Fear of the Lord" kind of person is someone who embraces a view of life, an approach to living life, and the actual living of life, in terms of God being at the center of everything. Proverbs takes the multi-faceted thing we call life and zeros in on many of its facets in terms that put God right in the center of things.

Lord, as we explore the book of Proverbs in the weeks ahead, it is my prayer that I will be able to give you the center place in my life more than ever before. I pray that through the book of Proverbs all the many facets of my life will be touched by practical wisdom and become beautifully aligned with you and your desires for my life. Amen!
