    I’m so happy to read Gods Word.

    Susan; When God appeared to Solomon in a dream and told him to ask whatever he desired; Solomon's desire was to be able to shepherd the people of God with wisdom and understanding like his father David did. If you read the opening words of the Proverbs you can see this was his intention, and the Spirit of God's inspiration, to teach wisdom and give practical knowledge for a meaningful godly life.
  • Todd Brawley
    Proverbs is the only book to guide you of how to be and act. And the discipline of what you get for doing as God says
  • Lu2677
    Heeding His word is liberating; peace and joy comes with obeying his commands. v.5"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding." Folks, this is not a suggestion from the Creator, it is a command!
  • Lu2677
    Proverbs 3:1-7,11-12. This chapter is similar to the concept of Psalms 91. When we learn his commandments and do them, we are set free. I am awe struck; so, to answer the question about being frustrated with Psalms 91, no I'm not! Amen.
