Proverbs | The Power of Wisdom

Proverbs is a book written from by a father to help his son become truly wise. Wisdom, according to Proverbs, is skill in living that comes through fearing the Lord. Jesus, our true wisdom, helps us navigate the complexities of life through the wisdom of Proverbs. This 12-week series will focus on practical, wise living in light of the Gospel and the book of Proverbs.
