Living Skillfully in a Broken World

This week we begin a new series in the book of Proverbs entitled, Wisdom for Living. The book of Proverbs is unlike any other book of the Bible. It is truly unique! God knows we need wisdom and He has given us an entire book aimed at instructing us how to live wisely in our broken world. Everyone aspires to be wise, but few attain true wisdom because they fail to listen and receive God's Word. This week we will discover what wisdom is and how to attain it.
