"The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning and the principal and the choice part of knowledge - that is, its starting point and its essence; but fools despise skillful and godly wisdom, instruction and discipline. "
The main point of the Book of Proverbs
is to warn against a pointless and godless life,
and to reveal all the depts and secrets
of human character and behavior.
Comments taken from "The Rebellious Years" by Peter Masters.
Our generation launches young people on the sea of life completely ignorant of the storms, currents and quicksands which they will soon encounter. But the timeless, God-inspired Book or Proverbs equips us so that we immediately recognise different characters or human situations, and are able to categorise them,and know what to expect from them.
That is why it is so very important to read the Proverbs.
However, almost no one is grounded or prepared for life.
It seems that everyone has to learn from bitter experiences.
We come up through teenage into early adulthood
only to be fooled down a wrong path almost immediately.We stumble through harmful situations, and in many ways
we are stumbling through life and burning our fingers in our thirties, forties, fifties and sixties.
If only we had been given more shrewdnessand insight into human nature at an early stage!
The Book of Proverbs has been defined as the best way to put an old head on young shoulders!!!
Why not open the Book of Proverbs
today begin learning the way of blessing
and what it is to fear the Lord?
