Intro to Proverbs
Written by Solomon to the people of Israel
Purpose: To teach people how to attain wisdom and how to apply it to everyday life
Wisdom Small Group Questions
Read Proverbs 1:5-7, 2:1-11
What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom?
Why do we need wisdom?
Why do we need to fear the Lord? What does fear mean in this context?
How do we get knowledge from God?
How will wisdom help us in life?
Knowledge: having the facts; discernment
Wisdom: Apply those facts to life
Without wisdom, our knowledge is useless. We must learn how to live out what we know.
But… how do we get knowledge? How do we know what is true and what is not? Do we trust what we have been told? How do we find out for ourselves?
So we can know God more deeply; He is the source of all knowledge and truth
Make good decisions for our lives; finding God’s will (prov. 3:6)
Help us in times of confusion
Steps for Gaining Wisdom
Fear the Lord
Why is this the first thing we are called to do?
What does fear mean in this context?
Fear of the Lord is to be in awe or reverence (deep respect for someone or something) of Him
How do we get knowledge through God?
Prayer, scripture, godly counsel, life lessons/experience
Turn Knowledge into Wisdom
You will understand what you have been searching for
God will give you the knowledge that you need
It is up to you to turn it into wisdom
You are going to fail. You are not going to apply the knowledge right away sometimes
Your experience of trials and confusion will serve as knowledge/wisdom late
The important part is to learn from the failures and mistakes that you make; the trials are preparing you for the beauty of the outcome
We ALL need wisdom (applied knowledge)
How do we get wisdom?
Turning Knowledge to Wisdom
No matter what you are going through right now, seeking God, whether through scripture, prayer, godly counsel, or experience, you are eventually going to get the answers you need.
It’s okay not to have it all together. It’s okay not to know. The beauty in life is figuring it out.
