“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings” (Proverbs 4:20).
Every father wishes to pass on valuable wisdom to his son. This is what we find in the book of Proverbs – the wise man Solomon passing his wisdom down to his son. This instruction has been preserved for us today so that we can also learn from the one who received a measure of wisdom from God that exceeded all other mortal men. The book of Proverbs contains practical wisdom that any wise father would want to pass on to his children. It shows how one can walk in wisdom in every area of life.
My Son, Hear My Words arranges the verses in Proverbs by topic and then provides commentary on the text. The material in Proverbs is broken up into four major sections:
- The Appeal of Wisdom: the father’s call to his son and the invitation of Wisdom itself
- The Appreciation of Wisdom: why wisdom is valuable and should be pursued
- The Acquisition of Wisdom: the actions and attitudes necessary to gain wisdom
- The Application of Wisdom: how wisdom is put into practice
The commentary in this book will be a valuable reference tool as you seek to learn and apply the teachings in the book of Proverbs. Its topical arrangement also makes it useful for personal and group Bible studies.
