Lesson Four: The Wicked Dies for Lack of Instruction

If You Know the Wise Thing To Do . . . Do It!

Solomon passes along rock solid wisdom in Proverbs 5 and 6. Unfortunately for him, he ignores critical pieces of it in his personal life to his own demise. Let's talk about those wise words today as we get our discussion started with these questions:

•  Summarize Proverbs 5 and Proverbs 6 each in one sentence. Then come up with a #hashtag for each.

• What has been your biggest takeaway from studying these two chapters? Where has the Word of God met you with a specific truth and application?

See you on the blog!

Lesson Three: Around the Edges . . . A Father's Influence

When the Wise Choose Foolishness

Solomon's life and example chill me to the bone. When the wisest man ever to live chose to do what was right in his own eyes instead of following God's way, he played the fool and reaped disastrous results for both himself and his nation. Still, while Solomon fell short in his role as the "son of David," God's provided a better, a perfect "Son of David."

I'm reminded of Jesus' words to the scribes and Pharisees when He said, "The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here," (Matthew 12:42, NASB). Let's talk about King Solomon today and what we can learn from his life.

What was your biggest takeaway from Solomon's life?

Where are you most prone to rely on your own wisdom? What truth from God's Word do you need to claim instead?

Looking forward to seeing you on the blog soon!

Lesson One: Where are You Building?

God's Truth Illustrated!

The book of Proverbs shows us what life looks like when lived God's way and the train wreck that happens when God's way is rejected. It displays picture after picture of life built on the the rock of God's Word and contrasts it with life built on the sand of man's ways.

Here are some questions to kick off our discussion today of Proverbs 1 . . . 

How would you summarize Proverbs 1 in one sentence? In one #hashtag?

What truth from Proverbs 1 did you most need to hear and apply this week? How are you doing at applying it?

Remember, you can answer as many or as few questions as you'd like, but you'll get more out of the class if you go ahead and jump in with both feet! Also, take some time to make a friend by commenting on at least one or two of your classmate's posts!
