The Benefits of Wisdom: Proverbs 3:1-18

One of my favorite novels is David Copperfield by Charles Dickens. Is there anyone better than Dickens at filling a novel with fascinating and unforgettable characters: from the hypocritical Uriah Heep to the incompetent but likable Mr. Micawber? When my son, Daniel, had a literature class at Western Kentucky University, the professor said that no one has ever captured better what it is like to grow up young and abused than Dickens in David Copperfield.

But look at Psalm 18 just for a minute. And we are told at the beginning of this Psalm that this is a thanksgiving for deliverance by God, a psalm of David, the servant of the Lord.

How are we to understand proverbs in the Bible?

Proverbs are essentially puzzles. This is important to get. A proverb is not intended to be simple to understand the minute you read it or hear it. It is supposed to be soluble, so it is not a puzzle that just makes you say, "I don't know; I have no idea what this says." A reasonable adult can always figure it out and explain it to a thoughtful child or adolescent.
