PROVERBS THE BOOK ADVENTURE IN WISDOM – SERMON SERIES VIDEOS AUDIOS NOTES

Proverbs would be easier to teach if its wisdoms were collected into chapter topics, but it’s not how God designed Proverbs but life doesn’t come at us in topics. Life hits us scattered. In a one-day period, you may need wisdom on finances, marriage, children, work, integrity, truth telling, etc. This is how Proverbs is laid out for us. The things you read today are actually things you may face today.

Life Gate Church sermons by Delbert Young

Have you heard about the series of books called “(something) For Dummies”? I’m certain you have. The series is a multitude of books intended to make complicated things simple. It attempts to remove the intimidation of doing anything, and according to Wikipedia, they published over 1,600 dummy titles. The number of subjects is breathtaking. There’s “Parenting for Dummies,” “Personal Finances for Dummies,” “Investing for Dummies,” “Computers for Dummies,” “Catholicism for Dummies,” “Spanish for Dummies,” “Home Buying for Dummies,” “Bipolar Disorder for Dummies,” “Golf for Dummies,” “Boating for Dummies,” “Auto Repair for Dummies,” “The Internet for Dummies,” “Fishing for Dummies,” “The Bible for Dummies,” “Grilling for Dummies,” and on and on. There’s even a “Sex for Dummies 3rd edition.” (I didn’t think anyone was this dumb.) The typical customer comment and reason and great success for the “Dummy” books is no matter what the issue, it’s spelled out in simple terms making the complex understandable so even regular people like you and I can get it.

I say all this because the Book of Proverbs takes the ageless Wisdom of God and, no matter what the subject matter, spells it out in plain language so the complex is understandable and even regular people like you and I can get it. You don’t need a theological degree. You don’t need to investigate the Greek and Hebrew. It’s life’s truths put on an eye level reachable shelf. How many people could have been saved from doing some of the dumbest things and instead made genius decisions if only they had reached into the Book of Proverbs?

Some dominate themes are scattered throughout Proverbs. It would be easier to teach if they were collected into chapter topics, but it’s not how God designed it. Life doesn’t come with specific “chapter issues” either. Life emanates scattered. In a one-day period, you may need wisdom on your finances, marriage, children, work, integrity, truth telling, etc. This is more how Proverbs is put together. Proverbs is more what you read today is actually about things you may face today.

The Book of Proverbs is one of the most colorful condensed explanatory books in the Bible. Let me show you what I mean.

(NLT) Proverbs 26:22 What dainty morsels rumors are – but they sink deep into one’s heart.

We hear a rumor or gossip. It may be true or false about someone. We gobble the dainty small morsel about a person like a piece of candy not realizing it’s going down deep into our own heart and from this moment on the individual is defiled in our hearts. We allow one thing, true or false, to damage the person’s reputation and cause us to lose respect for the person. Proverbs expressed this specific truth in twelve colorful words. It took me seventy-one words to attempt to say the same thing. Wisdom condenses it down colorfully for us.

(NIV) Proverbs 15:15 All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

It’s a proverb about our attitudes toward life. If we go through life allowing stuff to oppress us getting us down, then all our days are wretched and bondage. If we have a proper happy attitude with joy, then every day is a party. You determine how every day of your life comes out with your attitude. Proverbs colors life as being wretched or a party according to your wisdom concerning your approach.
