Wise Up! study in Proverbs

All Saints Church are studying the book of Proverbs the next 3 months. The best way to read the Proverbs is to read in community, let’s take a proverb a day and look at it together.

Our goal is to read Proverbs once a month by taking a chapter a day. To begin, we are in Proverbs 6. Here are some discussion questions. Maybe a few a different ones in the comment section below.

1.Define “sluggard” and “slothful.” Where does Solomon say a lazy person should go to learn important lessons – 6:6-8?

2. Look at the seven things God hates (6:16-19) explain the meaning of each in your own words. Why would Solomon use ‘hate’ to reference these things? Where do you see these offenses in our society? Are they in your own life?

3. Define lust. Many people see no harm in enjoying thoughts of illicit intimacy (such as in entertainment, pornography, etc.) so long as one does not actually do anything wrong. What can we learn about this from the instructions here and elsewhere?

4. Finally, How do people view stealing according to verses 30,31? Yet what consequences may it have? How does this relate to the discussion of adultery?

I look forward to reading this with all of you this summer. Send the link to some friends. Wisdom desires others opinion, thought, and counsel.
