Many ancient cultures conveyed practical advice in brief, but forceful statements, like those in the book of Proverbs.
Unlike the proverbs of other societies, which generally focused on how to gain wealth, Israel’s proverbs (we are the new spiritual Israel), are primarily concerned with making choices which honor God.
The proverbs sum up insights into wealth, poverty, careers, friendships, women, work and family. These observations about life apply to all human beings. The believers, as well as the unbelievers, do better when the choices we make are practical and moral.
Seeking God’s wisdom will straighten this world out, not personal and radical perspectives!
Our world will change when each of us do…believer, as well as the unbeliever. No exceptions!
