The Main Purpose To Have Knowledge And Wisdom ● 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. ● Stubborn fools despise wisdom and discipline. [Fearing the Lord is fearing His judgment on your life. Once you realize He is who you answer to you will want to not have His wrath or punishment placed on you. This is the first part of knowledge. This will have you searching the scriptures on what to do next. The very first thing to do is to give your life over to Jesus Christ. That alone is Wisdom and is the very beginning of your knowledge from that point forward. Applying Wisdom, having discipline to turn from sin and repent, will allow you to not become a stubborn fool. You will see the end results of stubborn fools in this book of Proverbs.]
A Parent’s Order Given To Their Son With Reasoning 1. 8 My son, listen to your father's discipline, 2. and do not neglect your mother's teachings, Reasoning: 9 because discipline and teachings are a graceful garland on your head and a [golden] chain around your neck.
A Father’s Right Hook Warnings To His Son Order: 10My son, if sinners lure you, d o not go along. Example: 11 If they say, "Come with us. Let's set an ambush to kill someone. Let's hide to ambush innocent people for fun. 12We'll s wallow them alive like the grave, like those in good health who go into the pit. 13We'll find all kinds of valuable possessions. We'll fill our homes with stolen goods. 14Join us. We'll split the loot equally." Order: 15 My son, do not follow them in their way. Do not even set foot on their path, Reasoning: 16because they rush to do evil and hurry to shed blood. 17 It does no good to spread a net within the sight of any bird. 18 But these people set an ambush for their own murder. Result: They go into hiding only to lose their lives. 19 This is what happens to everyone who is greedy for unjust gain. Greed takes away his life.
Wisdom’s Location During These Warnings 1. 20 Wisdom sings her song in the streets. 2. In the public squares she raises her voice. 3. 21 At the corners of noisy streets she calls out. 4. At the entrances to the city she speaks her words, [In today’s modern world, what do you see on street corners, public squares, off turnpikes into the city? These are modern cities today with the same problems from thousands of years ago. Not only do you see people with situations in their life asking for help, but you also see Churches they also call out to you. Ask yourself how would it be wise to avoid that same suffering? Seek the Lord for daily guidance on everything.]
Why Do You Not Listen To Wisdom? ● 22"How long will you gullible people love being so gullible? ● How long will you mockers find joy in your mocking? ● How long will you fools hate knowledge? [Again the beginning of knowledge is to fear the Lord. The immediate part after that is to know that the Lord sent you a gift in the form of a man named Jesus Christ who died for your sins. Why are people still off on their own paths of gullible false believes?]
