Wisdom in Proverbs

So Sunday, we started looking at wisdom.

Where does it come from? Why is it wisdom anyway?

I invited people, during worship, to share with us what words of wisdom their parents and grandparents passed on to them.

You know, like:

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

A penny saved is a penny earned

Look both ways before crossing the street

If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all…

Things to live by. Words shared by your grandparents at graduation or before you go off to college, or the eve of your marriage.

The first chapters in the Book of Proverbs explain where and why the ancestors are sharing their accumulated wisdom with the younger generation. The rest of the book is that wisdom.

I invite you to take a look at the next video in this series.

What little sayings and proverbs did your parents and grandparents share with you? Have they served you well? And are they worth sharing with your children and grandchildren?
