How Should Christians Read the Book of Proverbs?


What Is the Book of Proverbs?

  • Proverbs is the 20th book of the Bible. It falls under the category of Wisdom Literature in the Old Testament, preceded by Psalms and followed by Ecclesiastes. A proverb is a “short saying that expresses a universal truth for practical, righteous living.” The Book of Proverbs contains 31 chapters. Each chapter has several wise, short sayings from the author.
  • Who Wrote Proverbs?
  • There are three authors that contributed to the writing of Proverbs. King Solomon is responsible for writing chapters 1-29. King Agur wrote chapter 30 and King Lemuel wrote chapter 31. The way the book is broken down the first nine chapters spend a lot of time talking about the benefits of wisdom. When you get to chapter 10 and beyond you find the wise sayings that people often think about when they refer to the Proverbs.
  • What Is the Benefit of Reading Proverbs?
  • To answer this question, you just have to read the first chapter and the first few verses.
  • The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
  • “…for gaining wisdom and instruction;
    for understanding words of insight;
    for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
    doing what is right and just and fair;
    for giving prudence to those who are simple,
  • knowledge and discretion to the young—
    let the wise listen and add to their learning,
    and let the discerning get guidance—
    for understanding proverbs and parables,
    the sayings and riddles of the wise
    .” (Proverbs 1:2-6)
  • Let’s list the benefits that come from reading Proverbs.
  • -Wisdom
    -Instruction
    -Insight
    -Learning prudent behavior
  • -Learning to do what is right and fair
    -Prudence to the simple
    -Knowledge and discretion to the young
    -Guidance
  • The essence of the Proverbs is they provide wisdom for life that can really help shape your thinking and your decision making. Proverbs is not just about acquiring knowledge as important as that is. Proverbs is about acquiring wisdom which is the application of that knowledge in your everyday situations.
  • How Should Christians Read Proverbs?
  • Let’s now address this question of how Christians should read Proverbs with greater detail. Here are five suggestions that can help you.
  • 1 – Take Your Time
  • Proverbs is not a book that you can really rush through. Think of Proverbs as a marathon and not a sprint. After all isn’t that what life is. Many of the sayings in the book cause you to stop and think and this is exactly what you should do. If there is any book that you want to take your time with and meditate on this is one of those books. It is absolutely ok to read a little and think a lot as you read through the Proverbs. If you do this I believe it will allow the truth of the Scriptures to penetrate your heart and mind. Come to think of it this is a good way to read all Scripture but definitely one of the ways Christians should read Proverbs. 
  • 2 – Write Them Down
  • My son, do not forget my teaching,
    but keep my commands in your heart,
    for they will prolong your life many years
    and bring you peace and prosperity. – Proverbs 3:1-2
  • There are so many transformational truths in Proverbs that it is virtually impossible to remember them all. As you are reading I would encourage you to write down the ones that really speak to you. The goal is to move the Scriptures from what is written on the page to what is written on your heart. This will only happen when you are intentional about it and writing them down is a way of doing that. If you want to take it a step further write it down on a card and take that with you all day long. This will not only help you remember the proverb but it is a good way to memorize Scripture as well.
  • 3 – Use Them as a Reference
  • Another good way Christians should read Proverbs is as a reference. This may require you to get a concordance that will help you find where the Scriptures are located. You can also use Google as a quick concordance as well. Because the Proverbs are truths that can help you in every area of your life you may need to find one quickly when you need it. Therefore if you need to address an immediate situation then having the Proverbs at your fingertips is a good idea.
  • 4 – Add it on to Other Reading
  • Because of the nature of Proverbs, they aren’t really meant to be read quickly. Some people will add the reading of Proverbs to their other Scripture reading. Here is what I mean. Maybe you are reading through a book of the Bible and at the end, you read a couple of Proverbs. Remember the goal is to acquire wisdom and those one or two Proverbs every day can help increase your wisdom.
  • 5 – Don’t Treat Them as Suggestions
  • The real value in Proverbs just like all of the Word of God is in the application. As great as they are to read without application you are simply deceiving yourself. Remember these words from James
  • Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” – James 1:22
  • When you find the proverb that speaks to your situation put it into practice. Remember this is what wisdom is, the practical application of knowledge so don’t treat them as suggestions.
  • The Blessing of Wisdom in Your Life
  • I want to remind you of some of the blessings of wisdom in your life. Here are three passages from Proverbs to help you remember
  • Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
    for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold
    .” – Proverbs 3:13-14
  • Then he taught me, and he said to me,
    ‘Take hold of my words with all your heart;
    keep my commands, and you will live.
    Get wisdom, get understanding;
    do not forget my words or turn away from them.
  • Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
    love her, and she will watch over you
    .'” – Proverbs 4:4-6
  • My son, pay attention to what I say;
    turn your ear to my words.
    Do not let them out of your sight,
    keep them within your heart;
    for they are life to those who find them
    and health to one’s whole body
    .” – Proverbs 4:20-22
  • I think you can see the tremendous difference this book can make in your life if you read and put into practice what it says.
  • To think about Proverbs is to think about wisdom. If we are all honest we need more of it. The good news like everything else God has provided the wisdom you need to approach every aspect of your life. I guess when you think about it the most important way Christians should read Proverbs is by simply reading them. It makes no difference how much wisdom is found within the pages of Proverbs if it simply stays on the pages. If you get into the habit of pouring the truth of God’s Word into your heart it will eventually come out in your actions. God has shown us how to acquire the wisdom we need to live in this world. Our responsibility is to read it and more importantly, do what he says.

For he that findeth me shall find life, and shall receive mercy from the Lord. But he that sinneth against me, harmeth his own soul; All those who hate me love death.’ Proverb. 8:35-36 But God shows his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 He committed no sin, nor was any guile found in his mouth; He did not rebuke in return; He did not threaten when he suffered, but committed himself to the righteous judge. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we might die to sins and live to righteousness; By His stripes you were healed. 1 st. Proverb. 8:35-36 Nor is salvation in any other; For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, even those who despise him; And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen! Revelation 1:7 And he was clothed in blood; And his name is called ‘Word of God’. Revelation 19:13 “And behold, I come quickly; And I have my reward to give to every man according to his work. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13 Note: Today people don’t even have time to go to heaven. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life.
