The book of Proverbs ends with the description of an amazing role model who shows us what Godly wisdom looks like, lived out in every area of life.
The book of Proverbs contains lots about humility. In fact, it’s where wisdom begins; with a realisation that you know nothing in comparison to the creator.
Life is full of choices. Sometimes two paths can look the same but one way leads to life and the other to death. Wisdom helps us to choose the right one.
Many of Solomon’s proverbs are given by a father to his son. Rather than hoping for our children purely to be happy, surely it’s better that they are wise?
Whatever difficulties we face, whatever mess we are in, however broken the world is right now, this is not the end of the story.
Even when we are facing the consequences of our own poor judgement, we can be sure that God is ready to lift up our heads to face the day.
Psalm 2 is an introduction for how to pray not for ourselves as individuals, but with a broader view; for those in authority to have wisdom.
God has given us everything we need in order to know him better and apply that knowledge in our everyday lives – his word and his Spirit.
Who do we need to thank for getting to where we are now? Who do we need around us to enable us to continue to run the Christian race well?
Christmas reminds us that we seek an ongoing, unconditional love. It’s also the time when we remember that such love has already been given to us, and we can demonstrate this love to others.
