Proverbs 1:1-7 – Purpose of Proverbs

Sharing my thoughts and experiences as we explore the Book of Proverbs…..

The contrasting of wise and unwise choices is throughout the Book of Proverbs.

Change is a choice.

Once upon a time, I made unwise choices. (wink)

Until I chose differently. Praise The Lord.
