The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Praise

July 31, 2012

PRAISE   Can You Handle It?   The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives. Proverbs 27:21   For every person who can handle success, there are a thousand who can handle failure. As bad as it hurts to be on the bottom, sometimes it […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Sloth

July 31, 2012

SLOTH   An Underestimated Sin   The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth! Proverbs 19:24   Here is a picture both sad and silly: A grown man so lazy he won’t even lift his food to his mouth. He just bends over and buries […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Pride

July 31, 2012

PRIDE   The First Deadly Sin   Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18   There are several difficulties in talking about pride, one of the most obvious being that it is hard to de­fine but easy to spot. We all know a prideful person when we see one. But […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Sobriety

July 31, 2012

SOBRIETY   Knowing When to Say No   Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise. Proverbs 20:1   There are a great many references to wine, strong drink, and drunkenness scattered throughout the Bible. The earliest reference is in Genesis; the last, in Rev­elation. The […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Progress

July 31, 2012

PROGRESS   Walking Toward the Light   The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. Proverbs4:18   Here is a wonderful promise for the believer. God has ordained that as we walk in His ways, obedient to His will, our path will […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Sovereignty

July 31, 2012

SOVEREIGNTY   God Has the Last Word   To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the reply of the tongue. Proverbs 16:1   We might paraphrase this verse as follows: “A man can have his own ideas, but the Lord inspires the words he utters.” This is a powerful […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Providence

July 31, 2012

PROVIDENCE   The lnvisible Hand of God   The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord. Proverbs 16:33   Although the term providence is not found in most modern translations of the Bible, the concept is cer­tainly biblical. It refers to “God’s gracious oversight of the universe,” which […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Submission

July 31, 2012

SUBMISSION   How God Works Through Others   The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin. Proverbs 10:8   Submission is one of the more difficult lessons to learn, especially when we have more wisdom than the per­son to whom we must submit. It’s not that difficult to obey a […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Motives

July 31, 2012

MOTIVES   It’s the Thought That Counts   All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart. Proverbs 21:2   The man’s case was very simple. That he had been cheated out of his job was clear enough. That he had also lost his temper once or twice was also […]

The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Prudence

July 31, 2012

PRUDENCE   Street Smarts   For giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young. Proverbs 1:4   Prudence is a word that has almost fallen out of contem­porary usage. Partly that is due to some unfortunate connections with concepts of cleverness and undue cau­tion that have been associated with it. However, prudence […]
