The Book of Proverbs
Feel free to use some or all of these questions in your ,o,cell group, Bible
study, or with your family. Some questions will need to be reworded or
omitted for smaller children.
1) Do you have a favorite proverb or wisdom saying (from the Bible or from another source)? If so, what is it?
2) How would you define “wisdom?”
3) What person in your life do you think of as wise? Why do you think that?
4) Have you ever been given wise advice? Talk about that situation, what was going on, and what advice were you given?
5) 1st Corinthians 1:25 says “For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” What is a specific difference between godly wisdom and worldly wisdom? Give an example.
6) The previous verse of 1st Corinthians, 1:24, says “Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.” Wisdom is often personified in the Scriptures, with Christ himself seen as Divine Wisdom. What difference does it make to you and your life if Christ himself, rather than a set of principles, is Wisdom? How might that affect the way you make decisions?
