Dr. Mark Gignilliat – Wisdom from Proverbs

Are you passing wisdom on to the next generation? Do you have young men in your family or life?

The book of Proverbs is an extremely important book for finding practical truths and principles to help us in wise living. As we are gaining wisdom, it is a worthy endeavor to look for ways to share it with others, particularly to those younger than us.

Proverbs 25:2 tells us that, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.” What a blessing it can be to us to search out the mysteries of God that He is inviting us to discover!

Then in Psalm 78:4, the Psalmist declares, “We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD, about His power and His mighty wonders.”
