Passage: Proverbs 3:1-12
1. In verses 1 to 4, Solomon cautioned the readers to keep his command and “love and faithfulness” close to their heart because it will prolong life, bring prosperity, and “win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.” Are wisdom, love, and faithfulness close to your heart? If so, how do you keep it close? If not, how can you start doing so?
2. In verses 5 to 10, Solomon went on to say man should not rely on his own wisdom but trust and acknowledge the LORD. Are you relying on your own wisdom? How can you acknowledge God in everything that you do in life?
3. In light of Solomon’s description that God disciplines believers because He sees them as children, how does it make a difference, or not, on your view about hardship and trials?
