PROVERBS (All this week)

  • Build a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.
  • Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.
  • When the blind leadeth the blind…get out of the way!

The book of Proverbs is the earliest physics book on record. King Solomon, with his divinely-endowed wisdom, looked about him noticing the universe was full of cause and effect relationships:

Things that worked the way they do, because God made the universe the way he did. Things often referred to as “common sense.”

But we live in a world where sense is not always that common, tending to stray from the well-worn paths of God’s natural order. When we stray, we wonder why things happen the way they do.

PROVERBS 1-7 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

  • To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
  • To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
  • To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
  • To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
