Proverbs will teach you wisdom and self-control and how to understand sayings with deep meanings. You will learn what is right and honest and fair. From these, an ordinary person can learn to be smart, and young people can gain knowledge and good sense.
(Proverbs 1:2-4 CEV)
A true book of wisdom, written by Solomon, the wisest man in all of history. The book of proverbs, written to children, and young people so that they can grow up to be wise men, and women of God.
Steven was a young boy, a boy that liked computers. He did not play outside much. Steven did not play sports; all he did was work on computers. The other children teased Steven, and called him a nerd for spending so much time on a computer. Steven had big glasses so that he could see the computer screen. The children called him “4 eyes” and continued teasing him.
One day the other children were teasing him so much, that Steven ran outside crying. Out side there were 3 bullies waiting, and when Steven came around the corner, the bullies pushed him into the wall. They knocked his glasses off, and were about to beat him up, when they heard a voice, “STOP IT! I’ll tell the teacher.” The bullies looked around, and their stood, Josh, a young boy who never liked it that the other children were teasing Steven.
Josh saved Steven that day, and they became best friends, because Josh had enough wisdom to stand up for what was right. Both boys grew up and worked in a power plant. SUDDENLY! WOOOOOO! The alarm sounded, the plant was in trouble. It was overloading, and about to explode. The big problem is that if the plant explodes it would be so big that it would kill every one in town, about 3 thousand people. “What do we do?” Was everyone’s cry, for no won knew what to do. No won, that is, except for, Steven. Steven worked fast on the computers, then suddenly the alarm stopped, and the plant was safe. Steven saved everyone’s life that day.
If Josh had not acted in wisdom that day when they were younger, and done the write thing. Steven may have been hurt to badly to work at the power plant. Without Steven at the power plant, it would have exploded and killed everyone. So it was the wisdom given to Josh that really saved everyone life.
Can you see how knowing the wisdom of God can help both you, and all those around you? And you can get the wisdom of God from reading the book of proverbs. The storeys in this book are written with the proverbs being the foundation of the story. Making the wisdom of proverbs come alive, and strength to your soul.
To the Parents:
Through this book I have tried to make the word of Proverbs alive to your children. If you and your children will listen, and follow the word of wisdom in the book of proverbs, you and your children will do awesome things for God, acting in wisdom.
The book of proverbs is a bold, “in your face” type of book. It dose not hold back, saying that wisdom will be blessed, and foolishness will be punished. As such, some of these stories may be quite intense. Use your own discretion. The truth can change your child’s life, but they need to know both the good and the bad that can happen with the choices that they make.
