The Proverbs Project 1/31

 As a school project, I chose to read the book of Proverbs. I will be giving a brief overview of each chapter.

Proverbs Chapter One
Proverbs Chapter 1 talks about the results of rejecting wisdom, and it warns you to not be violent.

 Chapter 1 says that wisdom is calling for the foolish and the scorners, but they don't care. They don't wanna change, they wanna stay the same, ignorant.

 It also warns that when you try to take matters into your own hands and make others suffer, you end up suffering. It also says that the sinners and the evil spirits try to get you to come with them and partake in the "fun stuff", but it just ends up being trouble.

My favorite verse in Chapter 1 is Proverbs 1:7                                 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
