Proverbs: A House of Wisdom

Proverbs: A House of Wisdom

Use learning activities to help your group explore one of the Bible's more fascinating books.
5 Session Bible Study

The Book of Proverbs is a handbook for experiencing shalom, the blessing of God. While we are not guaranteed health, wealth, safety, and harmony, our lives will be better if we live according to God's revealed truth and act according to his revealed counsel. The purpose of this five-session Bible Study Course is to understand that God's ways are wise by building a house of wisdom. We'll examine what it means to fear God, guard our tongue, guide our youth, and make use of our maturity.
