Proverbs have the ability to convey a large amount of truth in a small number of words. Solomon was clear as to why he wrote these Proverbs down. This is what he had to say:
"Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise. Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just and fair." - Proverbs 1
It sounds like our world should start reading Proverbs right away!
