Series Introduction: A Word to the Wise

Every day we are faced with countless decisions that can change the course of our lives – for better or for worse. In the Bible we see people disregard God’s wisdom, and as a result, make decisions that lead to heartache, discord in community, and injustice. But those who embrace God’s wisdom lead lives marked by generosity, peace in community, and justice.

In the book of Proverbs, we find an accumulation of wisdom from generations of godly people. If we choose to put this wisdom into practice, we will discover that God’s wisdom leads to a truly great life.
