Much of the book of Proverbs is a reminder of the importance of seeking after wisdom in life. It is basically a book of good advice.
But in chapter 2, the writer says that if we look for wisdom, we will also “find the knowledge of God” (Proverbs 2:5). God is described as the source of all wisdom, and “from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6).
God has given us the benefit of his wisdom in the Bible. In it, we have documentation of his dealings with individuals and groups of people called to a very specific task, to stand for or represent God on the earth.
As we read these tales of God’s interaction with people, we get a pretty clear idea of how we should behave (wisdom). Through the stories in the Bible, God, himself, teaches us how to live.
Knowing these things can save us a whole lot of trouble as we navigate through life.
When you are ready to learn from those wiser than you, Proverbs is a great place to start, and getting to know God is the best place to start.
