Proverbs - Wise up about life

Most people think that what’s written in the Bible has mostly to do with getting people into heaven. Of course, there is a considerable amount written about that. But the Lord is equally concerned about how we live as His people on earth. “Wisdom” is the biblical term for this “on earth as it is in heaven” everyday living.

Wisdom has to do with becoming skillful in honoring our parents, raising our children, handling our money, conducting our sexual lives, going to work, exercising leadership, using words well, treating friends kindly, eating and drinking healthily, and cultivating healthy emotions and attitudes toward others that make for peace. Threaded through all these items is the insistence that the way we think of and respond to God is the most practical thing we can do. In matters of everyday practicality, nothing, absolutely nothing, takes precedence over God. Proverbs concentrates on these concerns more than any other book of the Bible.

So I hope you enjoy this new nine-week sermon series titled: “Wise Up about Life.” Along the way we will also discover that “in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3).
