"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1:7
In Psalms we find the Christian on his knees, in Proverbs we find the Christian on his feet.
The Psalms are for daily devotions, the Proverbs are for daily work and walk.
The Psalms are for our quiet times and the place of worship, the Proverbs are for the market place, the work place, the school room and the home.
Proverbs shows that Godliness is practical. The Proverbs deal with our duty to God and to our neighbours, the duty of parents and children, husbands and wives, employers and employees, citizens and rulers.
"The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to turn one away from the snares of death." Proverbs 14:27
The Proverbs are short, profound sayings of what sometimes is called common sense, but which is increasingly uncommon. Perceptive, practical, pointed and positive.
The Proverbs are "like apples of gold in settings of silver" Proverbs 25:11.
