It has been said that Israel‘s King Solomon was known to be the wisest man who ever lived. He was also the richest man in the world during his lifetime and his business skills earned him great renown. In his later
years, Solonan wrote the book of Proverbs.
A proverb is a short, saying that expresses a truth or piece of advice. It is based on common sense or experience.The Hebrew word translated "proverb" can also be translated
"oracle", "taunt" and "parable". So, it is not surprising that some proverbs are longer than others.
Even today, many successful, wealthy business people read and take the advice that Soloman offers. They
realise that hard work, integrity in both their personal and professional lives, and having the creator of the universe as their guide, they can look forward to every success. Right information leads to right and wise decisions. Wise decisions lead to the
destiny that God has in mind for us. This is what Proverbs teaches us.
