 +Knowledge is nothing more than an accumulation of raw facts, but wisdom is the ability to see people, events,
 +and situations as God sees them.  In the Book of Proverbs, Solomon reveals the mind of God in matters high
 +and lofty and in common, ordinary, everyday situations. ​ It appears that no topic escaped King Solomon'​s ​
 +attention.

  ​Christ is presented in Proverbs as the Wisdom for which the wise man aspires (cf. Prov. 8). The New Testament declares that Christ was "made our wisdom"​ (I Cor. 1:30) and that in Christ "are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge"​ (Col. 2:3).  ​Christ is presented in Proverbs as the Wisdom for which the wise man aspires (cf.

 +**Practical Applications:​**

 +There are 31 chapters in this amazing book.  Many people recommend reading it on a monthly basis because Proverbs 
 +is probably the greatest "how to" book ever written, and those who have the good sense to take Solomon'​s  
 +lessons to heart will quickly discover godliness, prosperity, and contentment are theirs for the asking.

 +The recurring promise of the book of Proverbs is that those who choose wisdom and follow God will be blessed 
 +in numerous ways with long life (9:11); prosperity (2:20-22); joy (3:13-18); and the goodness of God (12:21). 
 +Those who reject Him, on the one hand, suffer shame and death (3:35; 10:​21). ​ To reject God is to choose 
 +folly over wisdom and is to separate ourselves from God, His Word, His wisdom and His blessings.
