PROVERBS 

     Knowledge is an accumulation of raw facts, but wisdom is the ability to see people, events, and situations as God sees them.

     In the book of Proverbs, the mind of God is revealed in matters high and lofty and in common, ordinary, everyday situations as well.  It appears that no topic escapes attention.

     Summarizing the book of Proverbs is difficult for unlike many other books of Scripture, there is no particular plot or storyline found in its pages; nor are there any principal characters found in the book.  It is wisdom that center - stage a grand, divine wisdom that transcends the whole of history, peoples and cultures.  The theme of wisdom and its necessity in our lives finds its fulfillment in Christ.

     In Proverbs we are exhorted that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

 Those who choose wisdom and follow God will be blessed in numerous ways.
