4 Introductory lessons on wisdom from Proverbs.

November 5, 2014. I think I have decided that I want to write a book on the concepts laid out in the book of Proverbs. Of course, I say this about a lot of biblical topics and I think this is probably the five or six book that I have planned to write without follow…

Couplets of wisdom.

March 10, 2014. The book of Proverbs is a favorite amongst many Christians all around the world.

What is interesting to me about the book is…

Two lessons from a wise man.

February 20, 2014. Today a friend of mine and I were studying Ecclesiastes, and we ran across a passage that I liked so much that I decided it was worthy of yet again jumping back into this book for today’s post (in all fairness, it really doesn’t take much for me to make that decision)….

Are good thoughts and/or good intentions every contrary to the will of God? This probably seems like a weird question, or maybe a question with an obvious answer, but…
