The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. - Proverbs 1:7 (ESV) It seems like there are smart people and 'smart people'. We live in a town with a BUNCH of very well-educated people. They know answers to things that I didn't even know were questions. They have some many letters behind their name that it looks like an alphabet soup. There are also 'smart people' that have what we often call 'street smarts'. They understand how the world works. They know people and what motivates and moves them. They know how to make a deal and they know how to just get stuff done. My question is...are either of these kinds of smart people wise? Proverbs describes something called wisdom that involves knowledge. It involves the ability to relate to people. Is this just some mash-up of the intellect and social skills? This week we begin our Walk with the Wise in Proverbs 1-9. We begin by seeing seeing what wisdom is for and where it comes from. I want to encourage you to take some time and read through Proverbs 1 to prepare your heart and mind. Looking forward to worshiping with you.
