August 1, Proverbs 1:1-7, Wisdom

Proverbs1The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

2To know wisdom and instruction,

To discern the sayings of understanding,

3To receive instruction in wise behavior,

Righteousness, justice and equity;

4To give prudence to the naive,

To the youth knowledge and discretion,

5A wise man will hear and increase in learning,

And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,

6To understand a proverb and a figure,

The words of the wise and their riddles.

7The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;

Fools despise wisdom and instruction.


Action: List the actions that I should be taking to acquire wisdom from God.
