Sermons on Wisdom
In Proverbs 1:8-19 Solomon begins his instructions to his son. Throughout the book of Proverbs there is an emphasis on instruction within the family, particularly parents to children. As was the case in Solomon’s day, there is a great temptation to listen to a peer group rather than to parents. Godliness in the home entails careful instruction of children concerning temptations to sin and obedient children who heed their parents’ advice rather than their friends’.
Pastor Grasso begins a series on Proverbs where he explains the significance of wisdom. Wisdom is related to knowledge but goes beyond it. It is related to righteous living. It is related to leadership in the family, church, and society. It is related to foresight in building. Wisdom is more valuable than gold, but how does one find it? The answer: the fear of the Lord.
