Someone once described Proverbs as qthe Ten Commandments in shoe leather.q It often contains the very practical and homespun wisdom of secular proverbs, such as qa stitch in time saves nineq or qa fool and his money are soon parted.q But the wisdom of Proverbs goes far beyond mere worldly wisdom. It contains the revealed truth of God, Creator of heaven and earth. Thus, as with any other of the 66 books of God's Word-the Bible-Proverbs needs to be approached with reverential awe, as we prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to make it real to us that we might make application of its teaching to our daily lives.
