The Wisdom of Proverbs (Part 5 of 5) – How does Wisdom help?

Sunday 30 August 2015

  • Wisdom that Works = Proverbs
  • Pastor Arnie Hall
  • Week 5 of 5

Different books for different purposes

  • Proverbs = Wisdom
  • Psalms = emotions, songs
  • Genesis = foundations
  • Revelation = awe, shock and wonder

2 Signposts:

  • Wisdom = what God has for me
  • Foolishness = what I have for me
