Join us July 11 – August 8 for Everyday Wisdom: Proverbs for the Daily Walk
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” These words are among the opening verses of the Book of Proverbs (1:7), which will be our focus in worship for most of July and part of August. “Wisdom” features pretty highly in Proverbs. You could argue it’s a quality that’s among the greatest we could aspire to.
So what comes to mind when we consider wisdom? A sage elder dispensing profound insights into the world, maybe. No doubt experience or age could be sources of wisdom.
As Proverbs restates it a little later, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (9:10).
Is that how we would usually define it?
When we consider if someone was wise, no matter their age or experience, do we first think, “Do they fear the Lord?” That is to say, do they revere the Lord? What would change if we did? What would change in our own lives if we sought that first ourselves? In the way Proverbs talks about it, wisdom is less about sage advice and more about how we align our lives with God first and foremost.
