The Wisdom of Proverbs

The proverbs (truths obscurely expressed, maxims) of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: -Proverbs 1:1 AMP

Proverbs was written by King Solomon, the son of King David. When he came to power, he was overwhelmed with his new found responsibilities. God, knowing his heart, offered to give him whatever he asked for (1 Kings 3:5; 2 Chr. 1:7). So what did he ask for? Wisdom to judge his people (1 Kings 3:6-9; 2 Chr. 1:8-10).

The wisdom given to Solomon is not the world’s version of wisdom. It is the wisdom of God. We see the contrast in 1 Corinthians 2. Please take a few minutes to read it.

This and much more to follow as I focus on my blog specific to Proverbs at lovingproverbs.wordpress.com. Please check it out when you have some time.
