Google Self-Help Books ... 5.1 Billion results!!!! Self-Improvement Industry was worth $11.6 Billion in 2019, and is estimated to grow to $13.2 Billion per year by 2022! Where are people turning to find wisdom, knowledge, instruction, understanding, discernment and discretion? The world and relative truth! The Wisdom recorded in the book of Proverbs has stood the test of time. It was "written" by a small group of individuals 2500-2800 years ago! Ultimately, we understand that these authors were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21), such that every word is "God-breathed" in order to fully equip the man of God to all good works (2 Tim 3:16-17). Sadly, those who are called by God's name turn to the world for wisdom rather than to He who is the source of all true Wisdom! Lord willing, we will spend at least 12 weeks considering the wisdom recorded in this book. We will not be able to consider it verse-by-verse but rather thematically - considering a group of like passages. However, we will still consider those passages expositionally and exegetically - seeking to glean the wisdom, knowledge, instruction, understanding, discernment and discretion that is being communicated to the "man of God" in order that we might be equipped!
