The Purpose of Proverbs

Passage: Proverbs 1:1-7
In this introductory lesson we will walk through the first seven verses of Proverbs and discover why the book of Proverbs is far deeper and more spiritual than many of us assume.
The book of Proverbs teaches that if you live an upright, righteous, and wise life, things tend to work out well for you. So it is very easy to think the proverbs are simply teaching us to live well because it is “practical” to do so. But from the beginning to the end, the message is that we should live well because it is pleasing to the Lord. The fear of the Lord must be the driving factor behind wise living.
