Proverbs 1:1

1. The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
2. To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
3. To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
4. To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

What is a proverb? One may ask. I looked up a personal dictionary A Proverb is: “A condensed but memorable saying embodying some important fact of experience that is taken as true by many people.”

As I diligently pondered on this I thought about what the Bible is. I believe we can take some comparison here and apply it. The Bible and Proverbs is “condensed but memorable” Many things that are in the bible we have memory of as we meditate on God’s Word. Proverbs and the Bible has important “facts of experience”; Experience of human nature and the fall of man. A real experience of what we as man, woman or child we really are.

We might say hey God does not understand. The doctrine of the trinity is truth. So let us review Matt 4:1-11 Jesus was tempted of he devil. He went through the same things we did or will do. He does understand.

So the Bible does teach us about life also Proverbs has important facts that we can live and understand ourselves; to better ourselves and to be conformed to the image of Christ.

Rom 8:29. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God

Encouragement is: To be conformed to the image of Christ Through Proverbs.
