Happiness According to Solomon

Happiness According to Solomon

We can’t find it in marriage or multiple marriages. We can’t find it in six figure incomes. We can’t find it in workouts or diets. It’s a sinking feeling when you are counting on something to heal the turmoil in your heart, but once achieved nothing changes. If happiness via the pursuit of pleasure is not the goal of our existence, then what is?

Wisdom’s Call

Wisdom’s Call

Is it possible God is sending us message that we are ignoring or can’t pick up because of the state of our hearts? In the gospels Jesus speaks of those who have “ears to hear”. In Proverbs 1 Solomon raises the same concern – our capacity to hear. Whose voice does Solomon want us to hear? It’s Lady Wisdom’s, and she isn’t hiding. It’s God’s hokma and it’s available to all. 

The Purpose of Proverbs

The Purpose of Proverbs

Solomon says the purpose of Proverbs is wisdom, moral instruction, to discern wise counsel (vs. 2), and to develop skillful living in what is right, just and fair (vs. 3). The chief aim of the book is to enable us to look at life through God’s eyes. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we can trust His eternal, all-knowing point of view and live accordingly.

Four Approaches to Wisdom

Four Approaches to Wisdom

God wants to turn us from victims into victors, from people who abdicate responsibility into men and women who pursue character, integrity, and trustworthiness and press into difficult situations. It’s this character that God is forming in us that will allow us to fulfill who we are intended to be. It’s this character that will provide influence and allow us to teach truth and love others in a world that does neither. It’s through our new heart, new nature, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and our cooperation with Him that our character will take shape.
