Proverbs 1.1-7 – January 22, 2020

Proverbs 1.1-7

The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction,
to understand words of insight,
to receive instruction in wise dealing,
in righteousness, justice, and equity;
to give prudence to the simple,
knowledge and discretion to the youth—
Let the wise hear and increase in learning,
and the one who understands obtain guidance,
to understand a proverb and a saying,
the words of the wise and their riddles.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction. 
(Proverbs 1.1-7, NIV)

“When we ask: “How does a person follow God?”, the Proverbs are a good place to start!”
