Do you want to know why we decided to study the book of Proverbs here at We Are Beautiful? I think the first first few verses of chapter 1 answer this question. These verses will show you the importance of studying these words.
“These are the proverbs of Solomon, David’s son, king of Israel. Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise. Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just, and fair. These proverbs will give insight to the simple, knowledge and discernment to the young. Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser. Let those with understanding receive guidance by exploring the meaning in these proverbs and parables, the words of the wise and their riddles.”
Proverbs 1:1-6 NLT
We believe it’s time for women to rise up, but we also believe that only the wise ones will be the women who will leave an eternal impact. Let us be women who can be disciplined. Let us be successful and inspiring not just in the way we look physically, but in the decisions we make, the relationships we build, and the discernment we show. We want people to come to us for advice because they know they can trust our judgment. We want to spread the aroma of Christ wherever we go and lead people to The One who is the author of wisdom and blessing.
Welcome to the Book of Proverbs!
