proverbs of solomon

The LORD was delighted when Solomon, son of David, asked for wisdom.

9 So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”

10 It was pleasing in the sight of the Lord that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 God said to him, “Because you have asked this thing and have not asked for yourself long life, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have you asked for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself discernment to understand justice, 12 behold, I have done according to your words. Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you. 13 I have also given you what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that there will not be any among the kings like you all your days. 14 If you walk in My ways, keeping My statutes and commandments, as your father David walked, then I will prolong your days.” (1 Kings 3:9-14 NASB)

By the grace of God through the same man, Solomon, and other anointed men, the Book of Proverbs exist. You can find it in the Bible :) The Book of Proverbs has 31 chapters and each with a great amount of wisdom that we can use to live apart from the foolishness we’re prone to make.

Join me and other followers of the LORD Jesus spend a month reflecting with the Book of Proverbs – one chapter a day to keep foolishness away. Take the challenge with unceasing prayers, and we’ll see how the Father will speak to us and use us through the Proverbs He shares. We can try this by faith in the LORD Jesus and the promise of change by His grace.
