Welcome to God’s Word for Life lesson companion podcast. LJ Harry encourages adult disciples to think deeply about God’s Word, to further develop their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to make a greater commitment to the purpose and plan of God for their lives.
Proverbs 3 contains some of the most oft-quoted verses on pursuing God, the source of all wisdom. Proverbs 3:5–6 commands, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all the ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” These verses challenge us to override our human inclination to trust in ourselves. While God has granted us the ability to approach situations logically, we must have the humility to avoid leaning on our own understanding.

About the Series
This series “Choosing Wisdom,” will lead us on a trip through highlighted portions of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. We will look at wisdom’s worth, wisdom works, the truth that wisdom waits, and then hear wisdom’s warning. The Scripture passages we will study will help us to better understand the importance of choosing wisdom. Wisdom is not elusive or impossible to attain. If we will seek wisdom by seeking the God who gives wisdom, we will gain what we need to please the Lord and walk in His commandments.
