Self-Help
Step one (1) is to admit you know nothing at all. Those who unwilling choose to see the bigger picture
will usually take offense and attribute that step to their own self-consciousness and even say they
'aren't stupid' Nobody said you were.

Step two (2), with the above being realized, is to really look at yourself - body, mind, soul. When you see
things as they are you will be able to transform your life on every level; this also coincides with step (3

Step three (3) is easier said than done. Give up your ego. Now with this people become confused, but
the step is really very enlightening and beneficial for yourself and everyone around you. When you start
to view every situation individually, you will see 2 sides to it. One, being your ego's point of you; and 2
being reality. The ego will always do what's best for itself even at the expense of others.

Example: Am I writing this to help others or in hopes that I will receive gratification from others so my
ego gets fed? Which is the ego speaking? This is something you should ask yourself in every situation
and you will be amazed when you make the right choice how much light you will bring into your life.

Step four (4). Live! Live! Live! Do NOT merely exist and go through the motions.

Step five (5) is to obtain as much knowledge on every subject possible. Never box yourself in by what
you think you should know and never say that you will never use said knowledge. You will. Call it
another version of "the art of war", knowledge IS power.

Step six (6)....do not believe a word I've said. There is a difference between believing and knowing. Belief
leaves room for doubt, but if you know within your very being that something is the truth, then you
should base you life skills upon that.

Step seven (7), the final step. Always remember that this is your life, every second you waste and clutter
with unwarranted drama and discomfort, it brings the value of life for everyone down. When someone
wants to include you in their drama, regardless of who that person is, you need to ask yourself one
question...

"Is this what I want my life's value to be?"

Imagine that you are at home with your family. Your brother starts yelling at you, accusing you of doing
something you didn͛t do. How do you react?

Imagine you͛re seeing a doctor about pain you͛ve had in your back. He asks you how long you͛ve had it.
You know if you tell him that the pain pre-dates the beginning of your health insurance coverage, you͛ll
have to pay out of pocket for all your treatment. Do you tell the truth, or do you lie?

Imagine you͛re using the internet. An ad pops up picturing a scantily clad woman, promising much more
if you click on it. What do you do?

These are the sorts of decisions we make every day.

M‘ Do we respond in anger?
M‘ Do we lie?
M‘ Do we follow our lusts?

The book of Proverbs gives us the right answer to these questions and many more:

Today we begin a series of sermons on Proverbs. This is a marvelous book ʹ yet, like Revelation, it is not
popular with preachers. Indeed, I think I͛ve only heard three sermons on Proverbs in my life: Why are
sermons from Proverbs so rare?

There are four primary criticisms of this book:

First: I͛m sorry to say some don͛t preach on Proverbs because the book is convicting. Proverbs has many
pointed sayings about the common errors of our ways. Preaching on such sayings makes congregations
feel uncomfortable. Indeed, some of us are feeling uncomfortable just on account of those three
selections I just read!

Second, some say most of this book is just a haphazard arrangement of verses, with no overarching
structure. Thus they would say it is impossible to preach on Proverbs verse by verse, for the topic is
continually changing. For this reason, even preachers who generally preach expositionally often choose
to preach topically through Proverbs. Chuck Swindoll is an example. His series includes some expository
sermons on the first part of the book, but then he has a sermon on the tongue, another on the heart,
and another on being an employee, drawing on verses scattered throughout the book.
Third, some criticize this book as containing rules that are generalized from experience, which may or
may not hold in any particular case. One often cited verse is 22:6:

ב%‘‘‘‘‘$‘‘‘/‘‘$‘‘‘‘‘$‘‘%‘+‘&‘

Taken on its own, this seems to be good advice that generally holds ʹ but we all know well-trained
children who departed from the way they were taught. So preachers ask, ͞Do I really want to preach on
good advice that doesn͛t always hold?͟

Finally, some criticize Proverbs as consisting primarily of secular advice, gleaned from experience, which
is not really God-centered. Examples include the first verses I cited today. What is particularly Christian
about a gentle answer turning away wrath, or advice not to lie, or not to mess with lust? Many good,
ethical people across the centuries would agree with those statements.

So given these objections, why preach on this book? Let͛s consider the objections in turn.

Is Proverbs convicting? Good! All Scripture is convicting if preached rightly:

‘0%‘‘ ‘‘%+ ‘+‘‘+‘%+‘+‘‘‘+‘


‘‘‘!‘ב(

Reproof and correction don͛t feel good initially. But we need them desperately! If Proverbs is especially
convicting, it is thereby especially helpful.

Let͛s consider the second and third objections together. As Hebrew scholars have learned more and
more about Hebrew literary style, they have discerned more and more structure in Proverbs (as well as
in other books in the Old Testament). Proverbs is not at all haphazard. On the contrary, it is very
carefully arranged throughout.

This helps us deal with the ͞general rules͟ criticism. Proverbs is ›  meant to be read one verse at a
time. If we misread the book in this way, many verses look to be overstated. But just like the rest of
Scripture, when analyzing any particular verse, we need to look at the context, at the verses that
surround it, as well as the thematic verses that set the stage for the rest of the book. When we do that,
we find that those Proverbs that look to be overstated are clarified and tempered by others. No Proverb
is intended to stand alone; the entire book is a composition of intimately related verses.

This is most obvious in Proverbs 26:4-5:

‘ ‘ $‘‘‘+‘‘‘‘+‘‘‘ ‘‘‘+&‘
‘#‘ $‘‘+‘‘‘‘+‘‘‘ ‘$‘‘‘$‘&‘

Taken individually, these verses contradict each other. One tells us to answer fools, the other tells us not
to. In this case, the compiler of the book placed them right next to each other to make the very point
that he is › stating a general rule in either case. The point is this: Sometimes it is necessary to answer
fools to keep them from thinking themselves wise. Sometimes it is necessary not to answer fools, to
guard yourself. The wise man distinguishes one case from another.

So realize: A proverb is a short, pithy statement that makes a point, but does not summarize or capture
all truth. The book of Proverbs does not consist of general rules that usually hold, but rather, like all
Scripture, it consists of carefully arranged statements that together communicate truth. These
statements must be used to interpret each other.

The final objection is that Proverbs contains advice that is basically secular, generalizations drawn from
man͛s experience. It is true that the words ͞God͟ and ͞Lord͟ appear less frequently in this book than in
most other books of the Bible; yet these words do appear more than three times per chapter on
average.

But we don͛t gauge God-centeredness by the frequency of the use of the word ͞God͟. Instead, let͛s ask:
What is the interpretive key for this book? Most of you remember in our study of Revelation that
chapter 1 verse 3 was the key.

?‘‘‘‘$‘‘‘‘$‘+‘‘%%‘‘ ‘‘‘$‘‘
‘$‘%‘$‘‘$‘‘‘+‘‘‘‘&‘

This verse, this promise was our guide. We looked carefully for lessons to heed throughout the book,
and then understood the surrounding verses in light of those lessons. In this way, we were able to
identify the main points of the book.

Proverbs too has an interpretive key:

ב+‘+‘‘,12‘‘‘ ‘+‘$/‘+‘%‘$‘‘&‘
 ‘
‘

The entire book is about wisdom and knowledge. And all of wisdom, all of knowledge begins with the
fear of the Lord. Without the fear of the Lord, there is no wisdom or knowledge in the way the words
are used here. That is about as God-centered as you can get.

So the entire book of Proverbs builds on this verse. The entire book is a unity built on this one
foundation: the fear of the Lord.

Therefore, I am excited to begin our study of this book. Through this book, God will get in our faces and
confront us with the compromises we make with the world. For in essence, Proverbs answers the
question, ͞How do you live a life devoted to God?͟ Note that we use the word ͞How͟ in two different
senses. If I ask my son Thomas, ͞How did your football game go?͟, I expect him to give me a description.
If, instead, our exchange student Siddharth sees the family playing the card game ͞President͟ and asks,
͞How do you play the game?͟, he is expecting us to give him instruction and advice about the game.
The book of Proverbs contains a 6  ›of the life devoted to God, as well as › ››66 
for how to life such a life. We earlier sang a hymn based on Psalm 86:11, ͞Teach me Thy way!͟ Proverbs
teaches us God͛s way.

Thus Proverbs deals with the nitty-gritty of life, showing us how to implement practically Romans 13:13-
14:

(
‘,‘‘$‘%%‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘3‘
‘‘‘‘‘4‘‘5&‘
‘?‘%‘‘‘,‘6‘‘
‘‘‘%‘+‘‘+‘‘+‘‘&‘

When we put on the Lord Jesus Christ, we see through His eyes, we see with His wisdom. We respond
with His love. Proverbs helps us do just that.

   


Let͛s consider briefly the overarching structure of the book. Today͛s text, 1:1-7, serves as an
introduction to the book, including the interpretive key, verse 7. Chapter one verse 8 through the end of
chapter nine is the prologue, which serves to provide context for the rest of the book. This section
consists of longer discourses, most by a father addressed to his son or by personified Wisdom crying out
to mankind.

Proverbs 10:1-22:16 and chapters 25 to 29 are said to be by Solomon. These sections contain many
apparently one-verse sayings; as we noted, the structure here is harder to discern, but I hope to be able
to show you that the structure is nevertheless present and important for interpretation.

Proverbs 22:17 to the end of chapter 24 contain the ͞sayings of the wise͟, anonymous sayings, many in
somewhat longer sections with more apparent structure.

The last two chapters are by Agur and the mother of Lemuel. Although we are given their names, we
know nothing more about these men than we know about the anonymous wise men whose sayings are
collected in chapters 22 to 24. Likewise, the prologue is anonymous.

There has been some controversy concerning whether or not Solomon is the author of the long sections
of the book attributed to him. Yet 1:1 is clear:

ב% ‘+‘0‘‘+‘‘‘+‘7&‘

Then chapter 10 begins, ͞The proverbs of Solomon.͟ And 25:1 states:

ב‘‘% ‘+‘0‘$‘‘‘+‘89‘‘+‘6‘%&‘
These attributions do not imply that Solomon necessarily was the original author of all of the verses in
these sections. He may have collected, compiled, and edited many from other sources. Furthermore, it
is clear that the book was finally compiled long after Solomon died; Hezekiah lived more than 200 years
after Solomon. But 1 Kings 4:32 says Solomon spoke 3000 proverbs ʹ and there are many fewer than
that in this book! So there is no reason to doubt the clear biblical claim that Solomon is the source for
those sections of the book attributed to him.

Let͛s turn now to today͛s text. We͛ll look at this under two headings: Wisdom and Understanding (verses
2-6), and The Fear of the Lord (verse 7).

÷     

Verses 2-6 tell us why Solomon wrote his proverbs, and why the compiler arranged this book. Verse 2
serves as a summary of the next four verses:

ב$‘$‘‘‘‘‘$‘+‘‘

Verses 3-5 then elaborate on knowing wisdom and instruction, while verse 6 picks up again on our
understanding.

The book of Proverbs teaches wisdom. What is wisdom in Proverbs?

M‘ Wisdom in Proverbs is not the Greek idea of understanding philosophically the nature of being.
M‘ Wisdom in Proverbs is not limited to the scientific sense of knowing facts about the world. That
is important, and 1 Kings indicates that Solomon͛s wisdom included such knowledge. But that
knowledge alone is insufficient.
M‘ Wisdom in Proverbs does not consist of generalizations from experience, though experience is
one possible teacher.

What is wisdom? ÷6  ›  6 ›      6›6  ›6›
 6›
͞How He rules the world͟ includes scientific facts and lessons we learn from experience.
But in order to have wisdom
  
 . You must see God, you must see His
handiwork, and respond.

Proverbs 1:2 says the book was compiled ͞to get wisdom and instruction.͟ What is instruction?

The Hebrew word has a broader meaning than our English word ͞instruction͟, and is closely related to
wisdom. For us, ͞instruction͟ connotes a lecturer standing in front of a class. But the Hebrew word
includes also the idea of discipline or correction. Indeed, the NIV translates this word as ͞discipline͟ in
this verse. The Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament captures these two ideas by defining this
word as ͞correction which results in education.͟

So verse 2 tells us that Proverbs was written so that we might get wisdom and instruction ʹ that is, so
that we might get wisdom in part through correction, discipline, and rebuke.
Verse 3 elaborates on what wisdom is:

ב%‘‘‘%‘ ‘‘‘$‘‘‘‘5‘‘+‘

Note that  ›correction and rebuke is vital. Only in this way can we become like Christ, living
moral lives, doing what is right, and just, and fair.

And we all need such correction! No one is so wise he doesn͛t need instruction. We see this in verses 4
and 5:

‘‘‘‘ ‘$‘‘‘‘$‘‘‘ ‘#‘,‘‘$‘‘


‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘+‘4‘‘‘

Verse 4 begins with those who obviously need to learn: the gullible, the young. Who is gullible? Does
anyone here want to be called gullible?͟ For us, the word ͞gullible͟ has negative connotations.
͞Gullible͟ almost means ͞stupid͟. But in Proverbs this is not so. The gullible person is distinct from the
fool. ͞Gullible͟ here means ͞easily swayed͟. The gullible person is almost a blank slate. With a wise
person͛s teaching and instruction, the gullible person can become wise. But if he falls under the sway of
an evil or foolish person, if he is ensnared in temptation, he will become a fool.

So Proverbs is written to give the gullible shrewdness, to help them to resist temptations and so to
become wise.

The second group mentioned in verse 4 is the young. The young are gullible ʹ they need direction, they
need challenges, they need instruction and discipline. They too need the book of Proverbs. Indeed,
much of the prologue is addressed directly to the young, as a father gives advice to his son.

But this book is not only written to the young and gullible. As verse 5 tells us, the process of becoming
wise never ends. We can always use more guidance. For God͛s wisdom is limitless. We can always learn
more; we can always become more like Christ. Everyone needs such instruction; everyone can become
wiser than he is at present.

So that is wisdom: Seeing who God is, seeing how He rules the world, and responding accordingly. The
young must be taught. All of us need to see Him better.

Verse 6 returns to the topic of understanding, telling us that proverbs, parables, and the sayings of this
book are key to gaining wisdom. We must ͞understand͟ them. That is, we must discern what they mean
by listening carefully and paying close attention to them. As Jesus says in the gospels and in Revelation,
͞he who has ears, he must hear.͟ Just so here. We can listen to instruction, we can read advice, and
never take it to heart, never understand it. In that case, we will never be wise. We must apply ourselves
to understand.
But this is not easy! Proverbs are called ͞riddles͟ and ͞parables͟ in this verse. Thus, their meaning is not
obvious. To discern the meaning, we must study the verse and study the context. We must pay close
attention.

But this verse is both an exhortation and a promise. ͞Study hard ʹ for the result it worth the effort!
These are words of life!͞

 
 

Finally, and most importantly, look at verse 7. This verse sums up the purpose and serves as the
interpretive key for the entire book.

ב+‘+‘‘,12‘‘‘ ‘+‘$/‘ ‘+‘%‘$‘‘&‘

Look at the second half of the verse first. A fool is a person who was gullible, but did not listen to
instruction. The gullible doesn͛t know wisdom, and needs to learn. The fool has rejected wisdom, has
rejected instruction, has rejected correction. Indeed, as the verse tells us, the fool despises wisdom.

Thus the fool exalts himself. He thinks, ͞Hey, I know how to take care of myself. No one͛s going to pull
one over on me! I͛ll watch out for number 1!͟

This is in stark contrast to the wise. ͞The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.͟ True
knowledge, true wisdom, comes from understanding who God is and responding.

Who  God?

This last week along the gulf coast, we saw a bit of who God is. Hurricane Katrina exhibited just a tiny
fraction of His power, just a flick of his little finger.

M‘ He is able to destroy our entire country. Easily.


M‘ He is able to destroy the entire world economic system. Easily.
M‘ He is able to take a hardened, rebellious sinner, like the Pharisee Saul, and make him into the
greatest missionary and theologian of all time.
M‘ He is able to build
 up, to strengthen you, to make you a godly man or woman ʹ no matter
what you have done.
M‘ And He is able to punish you horribly, to make you more miserable than you can imagine for all
eternity.

Who is God? We should look at these overwhelming pictures of the devastation of the hurricane and
respond, ͞What a mighty God!͟We should say with the Psalmist:

7+‘‘1‘,12‘‘‘4‘1‘,‘$‘‘:‘ ‘?‘$‘‘‘‘
+‘‘‘‘ ‘+&‘‘‘
(" ( ‘
The fear of the Lord! All true wisdom begins here. Knowing God͛s might. Knowing His justice. Knowing
His holiness. And knowing your insignificance, your utter lack of power, your utter lack of holiness.

Charles Bridges defined the fear of the Lord as:

‘++‘‘ ‘$‘‘‘+‘‘ ‘+‘ ‘‘


+‘‘‘;<‘$&‘8‘$‘‘‘ ‘‘‘‘‘$/‘‘‘
%‘‘‘‘‘%‘‘‘=‘ ‘+‘‘‘+‘‘‘+‘
‘$‘$‘‘%‘=‘‘‘$+‘‘+‘>‘‘‘‘‘
‘&?‘‘

Note the phrase ͞bends himself humbly and carefully to his Father͛s law.͟ Humility is fundamental to
the fear of the Lord. The fool says, ͞I͛m so smart I don͛t need advice. I don͛t need correction. I can run
my own life, thank you.͟ The wise person says, ͞God is great. I am small. Whatever I have learned of
Him, I have so much more to learn! I am unworthy of Him. Lord, teach me your way!͟

So this humble fear of the Lord is at the very heart of Proverbs.

This leads to a question: Many people don͛t fear the Lord, they don͛t believe in Jesus, yet they follow
much of the advice in this book. They watch their tongue, they seek counsel, they discipline their
children, they listen to their parents, they avoid sexual temptation, they tell the truth, they keep their
tempers, they are diligent in their work. How can the fear of the Lord be the beginning of knowledge if
these people seem to have knowledge yet don͛t fear Him?

Think of it this way. That morally upright unbeliever is like someone who owns a new car. And he loves
his car. He takes excellent care of it. He washes it twice a week, waxes it every Saturday, changes the oil
every six months, and even lubricates the door hinges. The car looks wonderful in his driveway. ? 
›  6       › › 

Just so with those who follow instructions in Proverbs, but do not have the fear of the Lord. They are
missing the big picture! They are missing the whole point!

M‘ The goal is › to make us good persons in the eyes of our neighbors;
M‘ The goal is › to make us prosperous;
M‘ The goal is › to make us outstanding citizens;

The goal is to make us 


   6 The goal is to make us   

Wisdom is not behavior. Wisdom ›   behavior, but remember our definition: Wisdom is seeing who
God is, seeing how He rules the world, and responding accordingly. So two people might do the same
outward actions ʹ in our analogy, they both might shine their cars ʹ but if one is not seeing who God is,
he is missing the whole point. He is missing the big picture.

Some people make the same mistake when reading the New Testament. Consider Colossians 3:5, 8-9:
‘‘‘+‘$‘‘‘‘ ‘3‘‘%‘%‘‘‘
‘‘$‘‘&‘&‘&‘&‘‘'‘?‘$‘‘‘%‘‘‘$ ‘‘$‘
‘‘‘ ‘‘+‘‘&‘‘‘‘‘‘‘&‘

So imagine that you avoid all those evils, all those sins. Is that how you become Christlike? No! You͛re
missing the big picture! You͛re ignoring the opening verse!

^ 
    ‘‘‘‘‘‘ ‘$‘‘‘‘‘
‘‘‘+‘&‘-%‘.‘

The command to ͞put to death sexual immorality, impurity,͟ etc,    that you are raised with
Christ. This is › a general command, ͞Get your act together! Live a moral life!͟ To interpret it that way
misses the whole point.

This section of Colossians concludes:

‘$‘‘‘‘$‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘+‘‘,‘6‘‘
‘‘‘‘;‘‘&‘‘(
‘

This is the big picture: Glorifying God! Living to magnify Him! Living in the fear of the Lord!

M‘ Life is ›  fundamentally about behavior.


M‘ Wisdom is ›  fundamentally about behavior.

Life and wisdom ›  behavior. But the big picture consists of seeing God, responding to Him,
glorifying Him. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.

-  

How are you doing in this regard?

As we go through this book, again and again you will face correction. Again and again the Word will
show you how far you fall short of true wisdom. How will you respond?

The wise man is humble. The wise man loves correction. The fool despises instruction.

We Americans especially need humbling. We need the fear of the Lord. Let me quote Charles Bridges
once again:

÷‘‘‘‘?‘‘‘ ‘‘‘+‘‘%‘$‘‘‘‘+‘
‘‘ /‘‘‘‘‘‘%‘‘‘‘$‘‘‘‘‘
%‘‘+‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘$‘$‘‘‘‘+‘‘
‘‘‘+‘‘,‘‘‘%+‘+‘‘&‘0‘+‘‘ ‘‘
‘‘‘‘‘‘‘ ‘‘‘‘‘‘+‘‘‘‘
‘+‘‘+&‘&‘&‘&‘ב$‘?‘‘‘‘+‘‘&‘‘

So prepare to be humbled. Feed on this book. Read each week͛s sermon passage ahead of time.
Meditate on it.

This is a book about practical godliness. It speaks to every part of our lives

M‘ To rulers, to subjects;
M‘ To husbands, to wives;
M‘ To daughters, to sons;
M‘ To employers, to employees;
M‘ To the rich, to the poor;
M‘ It gives guidelines for nations, guidelines for families;
M‘ It gives exhortation and advice with regard to sexuality, speech, justice, laziness, courage,
money, and respect.

Do you want wisdom? You need to see God! You need to see how He rules the world! And you need to
respond appropriately.

My friends, those of us who live this side of the cross must look to Jesus for wisdom. He is the
embodiment of God͛s wisdom! He saw God most clearly; He responded perfectly.

Do you see Him as all-glorious, all righteous? Today ʹ that is the first step towards wisdom.

M‘ Seeing God ʹ through looking at Jesus Christ.


M‘ Seeing how God rules the world ʹ through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
M‘ Responding ʹ to the person of Jesus Christ.

That͛s the goal: Not to modify behavior, but to become a man or woman who lives to the glory of God.
May these words dwell in you richly, so that you might so live.

͞The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.͟

commentary, I would have taken a completely different approach to preaching this series. For the reasons to
