PROVERBS

OBSERVATION: KING SOLOMON WAS WISE IN MANY WAYS AND AUTHORED MOST OF THE PROVERBS. PROVERBS DIRECTS YOU TO A WELL ORDERED LIFE. JEWISH TRADITION SUGGESTS THE PROPHET NATHAN COACHED HIS WRITINGS. AGUR AND LEMUEL, ALSO WISE MEN, WROTE SOME OF THE PROVERBS. UNFORTUNATELY, HIS LATTER YEARS WERE NOT PRODUCTIVE!

INTERPRETATION: READ PROVERBS 2:1-4. PROVERBS 2:4 (NASB) IF YOU SEEK HER AS SILVER AND SEARCH FOR HER AS FOR HIDDEN TREASURE.

POINTS TO PONDER:

A PROVERB IS BRIEF, INSTRUCTIVE AND DIRECTIVE. IT ADDRESSES REAL LIFE ISSUES. A WELL ORDERED LIFE DEPENDS YOUR HONORING GOD AND HIS DIRECTIVES AND PLANS.

PROVERBS 111: 10 (NASB) THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM; A GOOD UNDERSTANDING HAVE ALL THOSE WHO DO HIS COMMANDMENTS; HIS PRAISE ENDURES FOREVER. FEAR (REVERENT ACKNOWLEDGMENT) IS A FIRST STEP TO REAL UNDERSTANDING OF TRUE WISDOM. A TRUE SEARCHER MUST ALWAYS SEEK OUT AND LIVE OUT GOD’S HIDDEN TREASURES IN HIS WORD. THIS IS A LIFETIME ENDEAVOR!

TRUE WISDOM IS A GIFT FROM GOD. IT IS A TREASURE TO YOU AS YOU PURSUE WISDOM. YOUR SEARCH REQUIRES TIME AND DEVOTION FOR A LIFETIME! IT IS WORTH EVERY EFFORT YOU MAKE! MAKE SURE YOUR QUEST IS FOCUSED ON GOD’S WORD. GOD IS THE SOURCE OF ALL TRUE WISDOM!

APPLICATION: READING A PROVERB TAKES LITTLE TIME: LIVING OUT A PROVERB IS A LIFETIME ENDEAVOR!
