Wisdom is the foundation for which a house is built and upon it hinges Christian growth. There is worldly wisdom and Godly wisdom, one temporal and one eternal. This article will focus on a few verses from Proverbs 17 in honor of July 17, focusing on several aspects of life such as conflict, servanthood, the heart, and children.
It has been a long-standing debate in the evangelical circle (and to be frank, within most church walls) whether God is to be feared. John Bevere is a famous "christian author" whose books are more than likely on most bookshelves today. However, with authors like Bevere, they have grossly misinterpreted the fear of God, passing God off as merely one that does not need to be feared, even for the Christian, almost as if He has no wrath or judgment. This post will take a detailed look at the fear of God and the weight of it even today.
