Season 17: Treasure in the Word

Scripture: Proverbs 1:1-7 


God’s written Word, the Bible, presents Truth. It is filled with wisdom, insight, and guidance for living. Over the next few weeks, we will examine different types of Biblical Literature, and today’s lesson begins with “Appreciating Biblical Wisdom.” 

The structure of Hebrew wisdom literature has two main components. The first is a proverbial maxim that states brief observations about life in general (see Proverbs 16:1-3). The second component is dialogue or monologue addressing life’s struggles (see Job 42:1-6). 

We reap great benefits and rewards from studying and applying wisdom principles in our lives (see Proverbs 1:1-7). The wise person is motivated by a heart of “reverential awe” and the desire to live according to God’s commands and instructions. 

Head to Heart: 

The Written Word of God is a life-giving fountain. Would you join us for a “31-Day Wisdom Challenge?” We will read a chapter each day from the book of Proverbs. Before reading, ask God to open your mind to His wise instruction. After you finish reading the chapter, pause and pray. Ask the Lord to show you what He wants you to apply to your heart and life from today’s chapter.
