      Proverbs really is a great book of wisdom on how we should live our lives. It’s like a parent bringing up their child and imparting words of wisdom to their children.

      Proverbs is not a book of doctrine but a book full of wisdom for living right.

      Liz,

      It’s quite something how we all want joy in our lives — and yet we rob our own selves of true joy by being disobedient to all of God’s ways meant to bring us joy…. Go figure…. We are a puzzle.
