Proverbs (1)

A proverb is a saying that teaches us something wise and good. Every culture has its own proverbs. Most proverbs are true and are useful for our lives.
Solomon was the wisest man in all history. He wrote down many proverbs and wise sayings. Some of these proverbs are in the Old Testament book of Proverbs. 1 Kings 3:1-15 tells us how Solomon received his wisdom. Solomon’s great wisdom was truly a gift from God.
Verse 7 of our Bible Reading shows us that Solomon knew that his wisdom came from God. “Knowledge begins with fear and respect for the Lord, but stubborn fools hate wisdom and refuse to learn.” We can find that knowledge when we respect God and keep our eyes on Him.
Do you want God’s peace today? Then pay attention to the wisdom that God gives and follow His ways.
