Read Proverbs 1:1-7 Think about it: Multiple purposes are mentioned for pondering these proverbs and taking them to heart. What are they? What is “prudence”? Why do “youth” need to learn discretion? V. 7 is perhaps a summing up of the purpose for these proverbs. Think about the contrast presented in this verse. PRAYER POINT: Ask God to teach you to be wise. Ask God to meet the young people you may know in a powerful, life-changing, lasting way.
