11 Jul Words to the Wise Pt. 5
Proverbs is a book in the Bible, written primarily by King Solomon. It’s a source of wisdom and teaches us basic principles that help us do life better.
These proverbs are not guarantees, but they point to how life generally flows based on our actions and how we position our hearts. And, most importantly, the book of Proverbs points us to God as the ultimate source of wisdom and life.
One of the most famous proverbs “Pride goes before destruction” (Prov. 16.18) points to a recurring theme throughout proverbs. The writer of Proverbs constantly talks about pride and humility. Pride is something that we all struggle with in one way or another. It manifests itself differently, but it’s in all of us and comes between us and God. During this message, we talk about pride and what it looks like to humble ourselves.
