Week 20: Proverbs 10-31

Prepare these questions for Sunday, August 11, 2013.

1. Chapters 10-24 are advice from King Solomon and are often short, two-halved statements.  What recurring themes do you see in these proverbs? (ex., fear/knowledge of God, guarding your tongue)

2. Choose 1-2 proverbs to memorize that you could use to guide your own actions this week.  For instance, if you struggle with arguing with your family, Proverbs 12:16 might be useful for you.

3. The term "fool" is used often in this collection of wisdom.  Based on these verses, what makes a person foolish?

4. Proverbs 31 includes a poem known as "The Wife of Noble Character." After reading this passage, what words or characteristics do you think the author would use to describe a modern wife of noble character?
