Considering the Proverbs: Introduction

1 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, and judgment, and equity;

To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:

To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

I want to begin each morning considering Proverbs, if the Lord is willing, for several reasons. I like the first few verses here. “To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; to give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.”

These sound like good reasons to study Proverbs to me. I know I need to grow in these things. I also want to establish more consistency in my life and in service. Regular articles take more time because they are topically focused. I think considering a proverb a day is a reasonable goal and one that will help many areas of my life.  

If you would like to join me in considering and discussing Proverbs, follow or subscribe to this blog. I hope to have some thoughtful discussions.
