  1. Well, here I go. I hope that this is what you may have been looking to receive from your blog friends.

    Proverbs 1

    The proverbs are wise sayings that were made by King Solomon. In the first proverb we see that they were written not for the gain of reputation by King Solomon, or to add to his interest among his subjects. Instead they were given for the use and benefit of everyone, so that in every age and place, those same people would govern themselves by the understanding that comes from the proverbs, and that the people would continue in a deep and close study of them. Especially for the young people of Solomon’s time, the desire was to provide knowledge and discretion in life’s circumstances. The proverb, this and others, had the purpose and design for basic people, to give them clear and direct wisdom, and to be sure that each meaning was plain and easy to understand. For young people, the purpose was to give them knowledge and discretion. As a result of the reading and studying of proverbs, the simple and young would become wise. Solomon made the truth very simple to understand. He used examples, such as, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Also, to keep an eye whose focus is on God, will direct and strengthen the pursuit of knowledge. Solomon assumed that parents would train their children, and use their authority to do everything for the good of the children. He instructed children to learn from their and parents, and to retain that knowledge. Solomon was very direct in telling sinners of their wrong doings, and of their persistent nature of staying in their sinful ways. He called for them to repent of their sins, and thereby become wise. He points out the doom of those who would remain in their sin. Against that, he tells them of their assurance of safety and happiness if they would give in to the teachings of wisdom. The previous four sentences contain pretty much the teaching of all of God’s teachings to mankind, that is, for us to repent of our sins, Matthew 3:2, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

      1. I should have made clearer instruction for where to reply, not what to reply….LOL! I am so honored that you are taking the time out of your very very active life to share with us, Pastor. Thank you so much! Bless you ~Zoey
