The book of Proverbs is a compilation of the many wise sayings from King Soloman, the son of King David. It could be considered an instruction manual for how to conduct oneself in life. Reading through the 31 chapters of Proverbs is like discovering treasure. Proverbs 4:13 says to “take hold of instructions; do not let go. Guard her, for she is your life.”
A continuing theme throughout Proverbs advises seeking wisdom and knowing wisdom. Proverbs chapter 2 says to listen to wisdom and seek it as if it were a hidden treasure; then a person can discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom. Chapter 3 admonishes believers to acknowledge God and to not “be wise in your own eyes.” Verse 13 says “How blessed is the man who finds wisdom and the man who gains understanding, for her gain is better than fine gold”. Finally, verse 24 says by keeping sound wisdom and discretion “your sleep will be sweet.”
