LifeWay Explore the Bible: Listen to Wisdom's Invitation

Chapters 1-9 of Proverbs must contain the longest introductory sections in the Bible! These chapters introduce us to wisdom and how we find it, and provides us with ways to identify wisdom versus folly. This week's study wraps up the introduction by contrasting the voice, benefits, and character of wisdom versus that of folly. We are challenged in this week's Explore the Bible study to Listen to Wisdom's Invitation.

I have completely reworked the study in order to provide ideas that will help you remain focused on hitting one target. With that in mind, I have taken a different approach to teaching than what was suggested in our other material. The approach involves looking at more verses than are suggested in the ETB material and studying them in different order. I have also created a more interactive study involving your choice of one of two case studies.

I hope this approach will provide you with the additional ideas you need in order to wrap up this final overview of wisdom before we move forward with advice Solomon gives on various aspects of life.

TARGET: Your goal is to help adults understand how to identify the voice of wisdom over the voice of folly and to evaluate which voice they embrace.
