“To know wisdom and instruction, to discern the sayings of understanding” (Proverbs 1:2).
It seems to surprise many that faith is to have practical application in daily life. While the tendency is towards the acquisition of a high biblical IQ (Intelligence Quotient), a high EQ of application is far more telling of how well scripture is being understood. Where there is an absence of application, there is a corresponding absence of proper understanding. Proverbs, and all such Wisdom Literature, will elevate your “street smarts” in how life is to be lived.
