The Journey Begins

To have knowledge is to have information or understanding about something, and to have wisdom is to have the ability to apply knowledge in your every day life, and so begins the quest, the search, the exploration of Proverbs.

The first 6 verses of Proverbs outline its purpose. It’s an instruction manual on prudent behavior, justice and equity, a guide to gaining knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.  Proverbs is a compilation, as given to him by God, of the wise sayings of King Solomon, Son of King David, builder of the first temple in Jerusalem, and arguably the wisest of the ancient kings of Israel.

This is the chronicle of my journey through the book of Proverbs in pursuit of knowledge and understanding, my passage to wisdom. May it be a fruitful pursuit, filled with insight and revelation, discernment and comprehension, and may those who follow this journal be blessed in their seeking.
