Summary: In the book of Proverbs, Solomon taught that the wisdom we need to seek—the only wisdom worth having—is wisdom we can receive from God and His Word. The book of Proverbs addresses many everyday, practical issues we face like work, pride, foolishness, speech, money, family, friends, honesty, debt, discipline, child-rearing, godliness, and many more. If we study and apply the wisdom in this book, we will make wiser choices, become godlier, and learn what it means to turn away from the world.
About God: God is wise; He is great and good. He is to be feared! The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
