‘Proverbs – Wisdom for the Whole of Life’.
The flood of ‘how to’ and ‘self-help’ books, magazine columns and blogs – on everything from work to relationships to money to children – says something about our collective sense of a lack of wisdom for everyday situations. Life can be confusing, and we want help to navigate it well.
The book of Proverbs reminds us that God has not left us alone to steer through life as best we can. Here, if we respond to the invitation given, is wisdom to guide us through the delights and demands of everyday living. Proverbs makes it clear that wisdom doesn’t begin in human autonomy, but in relationship with God, where wisdom is then worked out in different spheres of life – in our homes and our work places, our neighbourhoods and communities – wherever God has called us.
The Bible reminds us that if any of us lacks wisdom, we can ask God, ‘who gives generously to all without fi nding fault’, and it will be given to us (James 1:5). The great news is that God offers wisdom for us, for the whole of life.
