Welcome to my Sunday!
As most churches are closed to day I invite you to spend a minute with me as I explore the book of Proverb in the bible.
In the Bible the book of Proverbs is classed as Wisdom literature, along with Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs and Job. The opening lines of Proverbs tells us the purpose of the book, (Proverbs 1), to teach us to live wisely, “doing what is right and just and fair”.
Book of Proverbs teach us :
Proverbs are Biblical wisdom regarding morality and right versus wrong. The Proverbs were written by King Solomon, who is considered one of the wisest men in the Bible. … He asked God for wisdom and because his answer pleased God, he was granted wisdom and wealth and power, and he ruled for a very long time
And today’s Lesson :

The rich man’s “strong city” and “high wall” are such only in “his own conceit,” and fail him in the time of need.

and understanding to set it on a firm foundation;
It takes knowledge to furnish its rooms
with fine furniture and beautiful draperies.
A family is built up, furnished and supplied with the necessaries and conveniences of life, and brought into flourishing and prosperous circumstances, by wise and prudent management, by diligence and industry, through the blessing of God upon them, without taking such methods as evil men do. The house of God, the church of the living God, is built by Wisdom, that is, by Christ; on a good foundation, a rock, upon himself, against which the gates of hell can never prevail; see
