Proverbs is somewhat difficult to study since many of the important teachings are scattered throughout the book. However, these teachings can be organized under several themes. To introduce this method of study, we focus our first sermon on the concept of wisdom. We compare worldly wisdom to godly wisdom. We show that godly wisdom has a wider meaning in that it includes knowledge, understanding, and discernment along with guidance from God. Because of our hurried lifestyles, we often can choose earthly wisdom over godly wisdom. Studying the book of Proverbs can help us rely on godly wisdom rather than worldly wisdom.
