The Theology of Proverbs and Jesus Christ

The Theology of Proverbs and Jesus Christ

The theology of Proverbs in biblical perspective is this: The wisdom of God has been built into the created order through Christ, God’s master builder. When we live wisely, when we live skillfully, we live in accordance with the way God has made the world. Ultimately, Christ is the fulfillment of God’s wisdom, embodying it to the fullest.

Often we separate our work, our vocations, into sacred or secular. Sacred work is seen as inherently spiritual and secular work isn’t. Sacred vocations are pastors and missionaries at non-profit and parachurch organizations. Then there are “secular” jobs that, in our minds, are less significant to God. These jobs and roles are simply to make money to support the real work of God.

For those who have money, you typically have to address the love of it, the stewardship of it and how deceptive it is in making us feel autonomous and self-sufficient. For those who don’t have money, you typically have to address the fantasies of what money can bring and what it can’t bring. You have to address the idea that success and meaning is equal to the money we have in our bank accounts and our earning power.

As a parent, at some point you will be confronted with your inability to rescue your child from the pain of their decisions or the pain of this world. You’ve spent every minute of your parenting life believing that if you were a good enough parent, you could prevent certain things from happening to your kids. But you didn’t prevent it; you couldn’t prevent it. And here you are – overwhelmed with feelings of powerlessness.

In Proverbs there is a caution against flatter, but affirmation isn’t flattery. Flattery is when words are used to manipulate someone; affirmation is for the sake of the hearer and is so powerful. We have so many negative tapes that are being played in our heads that we get lost in a world of shame and doubt and desperately need affirmation. We are so thirsty for genuine affirmation and so are the kids.
