The Book of Proverbs is an 8-week series on how to be wise.
This product, like all our resources, is a download item.
When students think of “wisdom”, the image of an old man with glasses and a mustache might pop in their heads.
It’s easy for them to miss the fact that “wisdom” is simply understanding how God wants them to live and then doing it.
Students need to know that being wise is something worth searching for and Wisdom is attainable.
Why is wisdom important? Because teenagers...
- Live in a world that encourages bad decision making.
- Need help navigating friendships, especially when those relationships negatively influences them.
- Are making life choices that will affect their future.
The good news is that God gives us a “how to” manuel on wisdom in the book of Proverbs.
That’s why we created The Book of Proverbs series – to help students discover “how to be wise”.
