Topics: Wisdom and Folly

The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction,    to understand words of insight,to receive instruction in wise dealing,    in righteousness, justice, and equity;to give prudence to the simple,    knowledge and discretion to the youth—Let the wise hear and increase in learning,    and the one who understands obtain guidance,to understand a proverb and a saying,    the words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;    fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Discussion Questions

  • In your own words, how would you define the terms knowledge, understanding, and wisdom? How does each term relate to another? How was biblical wisdom defined in the sermon?

  • What was the historical use of Proverbs in Israel? According to v2, what is the purpose of Solomon’s collection of Proverbs for us today?

  • What does it mean that the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom? Read Isaiah 11:2. What are some ways that you can see the Fear of the Lord in the life of Jesus?
