A Wisdom-Shaped Summer: Biblical Proverbs to Live By
Someone once said, “In times of rapid change, experience is your worst enemy.”
It’s common to think that wisdom is associated with getting older. Yet, the more we read the Bible, we can see that while experience provides opportunities to grow in wisdom few people actually do.
As we grapple with a world in constant flux, we need a fresh perspective on how to combine both experience and a biblical understanding of wisdom. The concept of wisdom is such an important biblical idea that we are told that even Jesus grew in it (Luke 2:52). How’s that for a call to make seeking wisdom a priority?
There is a whole book in the Bible called the Proverbs that has stood the test of time as a trusted way to give shape to lives that honour God.
This summer, as we enjoy a slower pace of life, we are wise to consider God's invitation to shape our lives around the wisdom found in the Bible. You'll notice how some proverbs are actually very difficult to understand, yet the Bible invites us all to listen and to embrace wisdom for our lives.
Consider Proverbs like, "A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones" (Proverbs 14:30), or “A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel” (Proverbs 15:18).
These Biblical proverbs might be just what's needed to get our lives rooted on the kind of wisdom we can live by this summer.
