Hey this is Ron Moore with today's Bible Minute.
The Book of Proverbs opens with this purpose statement in Proverbs 1:2-4:
"For attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young."
And this is true of the whole Bible, not just the Proverbs. Do you want to live a life of understanding and self-control? Want insight? Read Scripture. Want to add to your wisdom and discernment? It's all right there in the Bible.
Finding wisdom from God for every area of life comes down to one very simple thing, you have to read God's Word. You have to read His love letter written to you.
