Uncommon Sense

New Series: Uncommon Sense
Proverbs may be the single most important book for you to pick up . . . again. Many judge it to be a bit shallow and have passed over it. We are massively short sighted to do that. Proverbs is powerful evidence that God cares about every part of our lives. Furthermore, it is the tool God has left for adults to start a thousand difficult conversations with young people they care about. But Proverbs is far more than instruction to the young as Proverbs 1:5–6 says 

    5 Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser. 
      Let those with understanding receive guidance 
    6 by exploring the meaning in these proverbs and parables, 
      the words of the wise and their riddles.
