Proverbs 24:3-4 – By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. What builds a “house” and fills its rooms with riches? … The main point of this proverb, therefore, is that to build a house, learn the wisdom in Proverbs


God is the source of all wisdom (“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!” – Romans 11:33), and wisdom comes through knowing God. Notice I didn’t say knowledge about God. Knowing God comes through time spent in connection and communication with Him, just like you come to know a new friend or build an intimate relationship.

Reverence for the Lord is the natural outflow of knowing God and another source of wisdom.

Proverbs 1 :: NIV. for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
