There Are Lot Of Things To Learn From The Book Of Proverbs; Even The Queen Of Sheba Could Relate

The book of Proverbs contains the bulk of Solomon's wise sayings. He never fought a significant war and thus enjoyed a peaceful environment, aided by vast resources left by his father, King David, to embark on extraordinary growth and kingdom expansion. God, on the other hand, was the source of his success.

“There in that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.” (Proverbs 13:7).

Though they had a king who physically and habitually listened to their concerns, God's aim was for Israel to have constant intake of sound advice essential to perform His task. These proverbs would constantly catch people off guard and draw them in.

For example, verse 7 talks about the rich assuming they have a lot when they truly don't, and the poor lamenting their poverty. This is a magnificent invitation to adopt a giving heart in order to be blessed by God, as our Lord Jesus Christ commands in Luke 6:38 and Acts of the Apostles 20:35. Jesus, as stated in 2 Corinthians 8:9, is the best illustration of this: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, he became poor for your sake, that ye might be rich through his poverty.” In verses 13-17, there is also a warning about despising God's word.

Because these proverbs are not ordinary pronouncements, they are destined to captivate ordinary men and women, as the queen of Sheba discovered when she traveled across numerous countries to Israel to hear Solomon's words. Today, however, the Christian has a more powerful message that should compel irresistible attention from millions of people. Jesus is bigger than Solomon, according to our gospel.' We must present His gospel in such a way that it will outshine and outlast other traditions.
