In Episode 48, we covered most of the wisdom-related topics presented in the book of Proverbs including: seeking counsel and advice, constructive criticism, discernment, discipline, self-control, instruction, knowledge, planning, and prudence.

Several years ago I wrote the book, The Proverbs Project. My goal was to bring the content of the Old Testament book of Proverbs to life in a manner in which the average person could easily consume and apply to their life. I went through Proverbs verse-by-verse assigning a theme for each of the 900 verses. I identified 150 themes, which were then grouped into 9 general categories. These 9 categories became the chapters of the book.
Authorship of the book of Proverbs is largely attributed to King Solomon who was the son of King David. Solomon is thought to have been the richest and wisest man to ever live.
Wisdom, which is the major theme of the book of Proverbs, is the subject of Episodes 48 and 49. In this episode I cover most of the wisdom-related topics presented in Proverbs including: advice, correction, discernment, discipline, instruction, knowledge, planning, and prudence. In the next episode, I walk you through Solomon’s insightful explanation of how wisdom is applied by different types of people namely the fool, the mocker, and the simple.

The book of Proverbs is a collection of wise sayings or teachings to live by. Think of them as micro-parables, with the shortness of each saying being helpful for memorization. Most of them are attributed to Solomon, but someone named Agur wrote chapter 30, and a King Lemuel wrote chapter 31.
Sometimes we can get bogged down in the bad things happening around us. Not seeing what God is doing can lead us into depression or hopelessness. Look up and ask what He is doing. He is willing to show you in order to lift your spirits.
