Wise Words"My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God." Proverbs 2:1-5 Derek Kidner, in his wonderful little commentary, says the book of Proverbs "performs the function of putting godliness into working clothes." In other words it’s not a very "churchy" kind of book. It addresses the issues of our lives. It is intensely practical, distinctly uncomfortable and immensely profitable. In "Wise Words-– Finding Proverbs’ Hidden Treasures, " Alistair Begg looks at a number of the truths addressed by these Proverbial statements: laziness, friendship, jealousy, the use and abuse of words and language, the place of sex, the privileges of learning and the responsibilities and challenges of raising children. 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.
