Introduction to Proverbs: Words of the Wise — 7 Comments

  1. Thanks Doukhan for this introduction about The book of proverb. I think I get some good advise and give strength to learn it and focus on it. God Blees you and I wish he would help us to get some in that book

  2. I am excited to study Proverbs with my brothers and sisters. I learned so much from our study of James together. Thank you.

  3. In this day and age when people don't believe consequences to erroneous actions can hurt, I am excited to study a book that is totally dedicated to "If you do this....then this will happen."

  4. I think we need to realize that the fear of the Lord is in two ways. One, really fear and trembling, knowing Who God is and what He is capable of. Two, in love and reverence, also knowing Who He is and what He is capable of. He is our Heavenly Father, Creator of all things, He is not sitting there waiting for us to make a mistake to punish us, but He is waiting for us to trust Him and love Him enough to surrender our lives to Him, and let Him direct our path. He provides our needs, He never leaves us or forsakes us, He is our Protector, our Counselor, our Everything, and He loves us more than words can say. Just for Him to keep me until I came to my senses is enough for me to love Him back, and then when I found out what He did for me, for me, for me...it blew my mind. How could I not respect Him and "fear" Him, He has fought too many battles for me, and I can truly say not lost one. I thank Him, I love Him, I fear Him, in both ways, but the fear of His punishing me, does not overpower the fear of His love for me, nor my love for Him. My mom punished me and I still loved her, she provided for me even when she punished me. I was afraid of her sometimes, but her love for me and my love for her were stronger than that fear, but that fear made me a better person and helped me to give her respect that she surely was due. I hope this makes sense, because it's how I feel from my heart. I Praise Him...

  5. Thanks, Not too many preachers preaches on proverbs. I'm glad that time & effort has been given to put the material in place.

  6. I believe book of Proverbs reminds us of God's greatest love towards humankind. By his wisdom He sent His only son to die for us. Thank you Jacques Doukhan for a beautiful introduction about this very important book in the Bible. I admired what you have said and I quote, "The prerequisite for wisdom is, instead, to be humble, to feel our need and then to ask for wisdom." Praise the Lord.
