I love studying the book of Proverbs. Scripture connects to real, normal, everyday life. It speaks with refreshing honesty. Don’t you love these Proverbs?

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

“Those who conceal their sins do not prosper; but those who confess and renounce them find mercy.” (Proverbs 28:13)

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” (Proverbs 15:1)

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30)

“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!” (Proverbs 6:6)

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

On Wednesdays in the summer and fall at Burns, we’ll be studying God’s wisdom from the book of Proverbs. Join us at 10:30am and 6:45pm for a good opportunity to get dig into this treasure trove from God!
