The text challenges us to examine whether our own behavior is marked by folly or wisdom. Are we pursuing a God-ordained, God-centered wisdom or are we plagued by the moral, spiritual folly of the proverbial fool? This series of self-contained, topical studies will serve to remind us that the fear of the Lord is indeed the beginning of wisdom.
