“Proverbs: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young— let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.”  (Proverbs 1:1–5, NIV 1984).

My Musings – Like the rest of the Bible (Old and New Testaments), the book of Proverbs was expired (breathed out), from the Holy Spirit through the agency of the various human writers.  Words from God useful “teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.”  ‘ing – the product or result of an action or process.

  • Attaining – Success in achieving something that one desires and has worked for (wisdom and discipline).
  • Understanding – Mental grasp, power to comprehend (words of insight).
  • Acquiring – Get as one’s own (a disciplined and prudent life)
  • Doing – The act of performing or executing (what is right and just and fair).
  • Giving – To grant or bestow as a present (prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young).
  • Learning – Knowledge or skill acquired by instruction or study (let the wise listen and add).
  • Discerning – To show insight and understanding (get guidance).

My Advice – Sounds like a book worth paying attention to.  A book worthy of further study. So, “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  (2 Timothy 2:15, KJV).

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
