September 14, 2014

Introduction:

I. Wisdom is an equal opportunity employer. Proverbs 8:1-5

II. Wisdom described. Proverbs 8:6-9, 12-14

III. A thought experiment: wealth or wisdom? Proverbs 8:10-11

IV. But why do I feel like I lack wisdom? Proverbs 8:17, 19, 33-34; James 1:5-8

V. The reward of the wise person. Proverbs 8:14-16, 18, 20-21, 32, 35

Qustions for reflection:
• If wisdom is calling from the rooftops, why is it that is seems to be in such short supply today?
• Practically speaking, how can we pursue and get wisdom? Can you think of at least three ways to grow in wisdom? What gets in the way of my pursuit of wisdom?
• Who would you say is a good model of wisdom?
• What rewards of wisdom are motivating to you?
