For the next two weeks we'll be taking an in-depth look at wisdom through the Book of Proverbs. (Dr. Kroll will also be teaching on Proverbs and wisdom on Back to the Bible so plan to join us.) Now today we're looking at part of chapter 1, and there were three things that stood out to me. The big message was the importance of having wisdom. That came across loud and clear. But underlying that, I thought Solomon did a good job of giving us a look at how our free will can lead us away from God and His wisdom (which He offers freely) and how obedience also plays an important role in our attaining wisdom. 

So why should we want wisdom based on this passage? Were there any verses that were particularly important for you and why? Tami W.
