Definition of Proverbs
Proverbs is the chief volume in the biblical collection of wisdom literature, which also includes Ecclesiastes, Job, and portions of Psalms. The purpose of wisdom literature in the Bible is to teach rather than to relate a narrative. Proverbs contains thirty-one chapters, each comprised of twenty to thirty-five wise sayings that are each two poetic lines long. Most of the book is attributed to King Solomon; but, as the book itself indicates, the written teachings in their current form were probably collected no earlier than the reign of Hezekiah, King of Judah in the late eighth and early seventh centuries B.C. Other sections of the text are attributed to additional, more obscure authors. However, it is safe to say that Proverbs represents the written record of an oral tradition of wise sayings with uncertain origins.
Proverbs was written by Solomon.
Most of Proverbs were written by Solomon in Jerusalem while he was king of Israel.
Proverbs was written early in Solomon's reign just after 970 BC.
Proverbs was written to help people apply God's wisdom and moral instruction to their lives
Wisdom vs Knowledge
There is a difference between having knowledge and having wisdom. Wisdom means understanding how to use our knowledge so we can live our lives well and make good choices.
My child, never forget the things I have taught you.
Why should I listen to my parents?
Listen when your father corrects you. Don't neglect your mother's instruction. What you learn from them will crown you with grace and be a chain of honor.
Why is it so bad to cheat on a test?
Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people.
Some people may seem happy on the outside but are sad on the inside. Even if you don't like the person try to make them feel better because Proverbs 15:13 says:
A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.
And Proverbs 17:22 says
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person's strength
So just because you don't like someone try to get to know them and help them if the need it. Some people get bullied and keep to themselves. Don't just start digging into their live just ask them if they need to talk about something. Sometimes that's all someone needs is someone to talk to.
If you read Divergent then you understand this. BUT anyway these are also good examples and lessons learned in Proverbs.
The End :)
