Applying the Wisdom of God

All of us carry the collective wisdom passed on to us by the people who’ve been most significant in our lives. We’ve picked this wisdom up from parents, friends, teachers, leaders, relatives, barbers, and just about everybody … all the people who shaped and molded us as we were growing up.

 Some of this wisdom is very helpful. But some is just plain wrong. What kind of wisdom did people pass on to you? What mottos from coaches, parents, and teachers have shaped and molded you into what you are today? Some of it was probably pretty good, and some of it was probably wrong.

Part of being a follower of Jesus is sorting through that stuff, keeping the truly wise, and rejecting the unwise.

In this series we’re going to look at God’s wisdom from the Bible’s book of Proverbs. Each week we’re going to look at what the Bible’s book of Proverbs says about one subject. We'll start by talking about God’s wisdom for our lives in general, and throughout the series get a little bit more specific. I hope you can join in for this trek through the book of Proverbs.
