Last week, we learnt of Solomon who asked God for wisdom and God made him wise. This week we will explore some of Solomon’s wisdom that he was guided by God to write in the Book of Proverbs. Proverbs provides God’s people with principles for living.
Why not find time to read Proverbs 1:1-7 with your kids?
Wisdom comes from God. He made the world and knows how it works best. Everyone is born a foolish sinner, but God sent His Son to earth to save us. The Bible says that Jesus is the wisdom of God. Jesus makes us wise and holy. He frees us from sin. Help your kids see their need to trust in Jesus to be truly wise, not to simply try to live like Jesus. True wisdom comes from God and transforms us. That is the nature of the gospel.
Where does wisdom come from? Wisdom comes from God through His Word.
Memory Verse: Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
