Proverbs & Wisdom: The Good Life as God Intended

Proverbs & Wisdom: The Good Life as God Intended

Our series on Proverbs shows us that God is the source of all wisdom, and what that means to us: let God shape your character so that you can live wisely. Through this series, our hope is to understand how to approach the book of Proverbs, to learn how to live well in God's world, and to be pointed to Christ through the wisdom of scripture.

Take God's invitation to grow in wisdom with us through this eight-week series.


A Guide to Proverbs

Proverbs has its grounding in creation. When God created the heavens and the earth, He created them with order. We can therefore expect that there is a certain way to live life according to God's created order. This is where the book of Proverbs finds its roots.

What this means for us is that when we read the book of Proverbs, we should read it as a guide to good and proper living in the world that God created. Proverbs teaches us about the general rule, but is not concerned with the exceptions, because life is too complex to be mapped out by formulas. However it is through God shaping our characters that we will learn how to make wise choices for each unique situation.
